Legal The US is really ramping up its war on intellectual property infringement, a war which I'm sure will be just as successful, cheap and supported by the people as the wars on drugs and terrorism. The US has started seizing the domain names of various websites through ICANN - not because owners of these sites were convicted of anything, but merely because complaints have been filed against them. Anyone want to take a guess how long it will be before the US government blocks WikiLeaks? Update: The blocks function outside of the US too. In other words, the US is forcing its views upon the rest of the world once again.

Because ther're never hate crimes in New Zealand. New Zealanders are highly sophisticated, and have never struggled with homophobia (or, for that matter, racism).


Where did I state that - reading things into my post that I never implied.

Jefro is a symptom of a nation who can't get their head around the notion that limited government means not only the government out of the marketplace but also out of the lives of individuals. The idea of being a social conservative and yet libertarian on the economy is a contradiction in terms. You either believe freedom across the board or you're a big government statist - take your pick but don't try to call yourself pro-freedom when you're little more than a socially conservative socialist.

Maybe you should pick up "Capitalism and Freedom" and turn to the chapter dealing with political, economic and social freedom rather than listening to right wing nuts like Anne Coulter or Sean Hannity for your daily dosage of drongoism.
