…draconian mentalities, and freedom of speech controls, and with whom you even talk with, is what we are slowly loosing, even in Canada: OUR FREEDOMS !
..draconian “inquisitionary religious and non religious ones” never helped really to any progress to anything better. the proof is it produced deep “obscurantism”…!
…to be detained out of the blue, with no citation of parties involved, to be submitted to psychological torture and humiliation, with RCMP police presence and involvement, with no minimal due course of events, and both parties involved solutions, goes beyond the alleged benefit ! YOU HAVE BEEN VIOLATED, AND DEGRADED FROM A SELF PERSONA ADULT !
…things that happen in Ethiopia, are “sticky”, and Canada has freedom under anti-terrorism, to intrude in anybody’s privacy, and Canada is going more and more draconian !
…are we still ancient ? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Draco_%28lawgiver%29
