As we face the fact that our government and its organs cannot be trusted to respect the rights, or even the humanity, of innocent Australian citizens, the same government and its organs are calling for the downgrading of citizen’s protections agains abuse of power by the State with a view, perhaps, to the legalisation of state torture.
In tandem, as we face the fact that our government and its organs make terrible errors with dire consequences for the lives of innocent citizens …
Citizens must TRUST the good faith of governments and their organs, and firmly believe that they will not abuse their powers because they RESPECT their own citizens.
Trust your organs, citizens! Do not allow them to be abused! Kingston’s organic rant is in response to academic thoughts favouring torture, under particular conditions. Margomite Yutaka would prefer to risk death:
my preference is to risk being blown up rather than to have torture available to ensure my safety
I like your style, Yutaka.
Would Yutaka prefer to be actually blown up than have torture available? I like your evasiveness, Yutaka! Among other Margoloid replies:
Daniel Boase-Jelinek: Australia under Howard is following in the footsteps of Nazi Germany.
Spoken like a true Jelinek.
Carl Baker: Give up people; we have lost the War on Terror. All it took was 19 men in 4 aircraft 1 day to bring the United States and Australia to our knees … Will the apologist right-wing have the guts to stand up and protect the freedoms they hold so dear? Or will they acquiesce and lie down like dogs to be kicked in the guts once again?
If we’ve already lost, what freedoms remain to be protected?
Roger Fedyk: There is something chillingly reminiscent of pre-war Nazi Germany, where it became acceptable to speak of ‘untermenschen’ and the fact that some persons had less rights than others.
Hear that, Poland? Australia is coming after you!
