    5. Allow and even promote street justice.
    Let's see, are we talking about developing countries, or a "democratic" incubator named the US of A?

    Delusional perceptions of the US have no place in rational debate.

    You are apologizing for totalitarian dictatorships.

    I am expressing disgust at the government I once served. Disgust that widespread attacks on the document I swore to uphold are made almost daily by all 3 branches of the government who once wrote my paychecks.

    It's not pretty and I'm not happy pointing these things out, but I am in touch with reality, however bitter it might be.

    In a delusional manner and, in the process, supporting totalitarian dictatorships.

    Got any more completely stupid strawmans for me to destroy in a single sentence? Or do you actually want to address what I said to you in the first place, namely:
    It is in many ways. Both believed the government was doing something evil/wrong. Both chose to take informantion and get it out. Both were traitors.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    No & no. But do either one become true if one recognizes that the reality in their country doesn't exactly match up with the language routinely used by politicians or laws of the land? There is no other place on this planet that I'd rather be than here in the U.S. & my home state of Michigan but I identify, acknowledge & accept that things going on here are different than what I (and probably you) was taught in grade school, hear from the media/politicians on a daily basis & read in sanitized history books (I.e. they only tell the story of our triumphs without also mentioning everything else that is involved in our unique & colorful history.)
