Whats so funny about peace, love and understanding?

Comment 27th July 2010

In using the title from Nick Lowe's/Elvis Costello's iconic song about the need for freedom and radical change I want to support the scrapping of the oppressive and unjust Control Laws as proposed by Amnesty International.  Surely a system whereby citizens, even though suspected of being our enemies, can have their freedom of thought and movement so constrained flies against all decent liberal vales?  Furthermore when these citizens have no way of ascertaining what charges/evidence has been brought against them, we are effectively living in a Kafkasesque police state.  The very chains with which we bind others simultaneously bind us.  The key to the lock we throw away is the key to our own freedom.

Why does this matter?

Without a vision of justice and truth for ALL then we all perish.
