No it's not, it's a perfect example of things broken down, just look at my second post in this "thread".

Imagine a government gives green light to everyone to arm themselves and take the law in their own hands.

Yes it would _if_, but I just proved it doesnt.

Of course everybody has the right to arm themselves and take matters into their own hands. It's actually a right in all democracies. There are limitations on when one can do it, but there are situations where it is illegal not to take the law into your own hand. At least in Denmark.

Democracy is built upon the People taking matters into its own hands.

Woow.. off-topic ;)

Anyway, I disagree. Just because somebody can't handle the responsibility doesn't mean nobody can. Just ban the abusers of the voting system.

One of the ways to kill the probs with mod trolls here in osnews for it to show who modded who down. Maybe this could be a v4 feature ;-)

Granted this would end up with the trolls modding down the trolls until we never saw any of their comments.

We can only wish...

First of all I want to thank my lovely rightwinger loonatic fanclub, nnd the misfunctioning police of this site for arming these loonatics ;)

I dont think you realize what you just wrote.
Anyway creating an alternative scenery without the far-reaching consequences of your democracy of choice, assume this democracy of your choice exists, now, I would be able to rob ppl, destroy their property, burn their houses etc etc. The police would know about it, but neither stop me nor revealing who's doing it.
This is exactly how osnews works, seems there's need for another OS news community as this reminds and functions not very different from youtube.
