We've all got grandparents or great grandparents who fought in something so you can cut off your cross for a start.
Well they'll be able to empathize with the situation. It is unlikely that you have ever written to a politician after reading a legislation like this to defend the remaining democracy. I have, so perhaps the best thing you can do is move to north korea or some other military dictatorship to cheer them on, or just STFU and let the rest of us spend our time ensuring the rule of law applies to all in democracies. After all, that is the point of a democracy.
What a mature reaction on your part, GTFU.
The exact same "police state" rhetoric arguments was wheeled out when fingerprinting was indroduced, then DNA matching, then CCTV.
Yes, and step by step it incrementally becomes more of a police state until someone steps in, uses those powers and it becomes a dictatorship. Perhaps you are an optimist who trusts leaders to implicitly do the right thing. We've seen you before, you pick on the weak and oppressed while defending the powerful and corrupt, who think of you as a rather useful idiot.
Change the bloody record.
I'd love to but people like you keep pressing repeat. I know the soundtrack. We've seen the movie so many times, the film is flapping on the side of the projector, the reel is over, the end is always the same, and at the beginning are people like you who allow power structures like this to evolve and dictators to exist. You are the domestic enemy we are warned about.
The song is always the same because you just aren't comfortable with any other tunes.
To put it another way you enjoy being anally fist fucked, so to make you feel normal, you want everyone to experience it if only they would just stop fighting and give in. After that, you don't know because you don't think that far ahead.
