So this comic was particularly enjoyable:
Apparently it refers to a real event. A student had a sticker on his bike for the punk band "This bike is a pipe bomb". Cops destroyed his bike with power tools then arrested the student, who is now facing up to six months in jail.
Bruce Schneier, a security expert, says people should refuse to be terrorized. No shit. Stop panicking about ridiculous shit like this and panic about real worries! People are accepting more and more cuts into their freedoms, in the name of stopping terrorism. Um, when was the last terrorist attack in our countries? The terrorists are probably more worried about US, invading their countries.
Ross Anderson, a professor at Cambridge University in Britain, has compared the present situation to a "boiled frog" -- which fails to jump out of the saucepan as the water gradually heats. If liberty is eroded slowly, people will get used to it.
This is the end result. Anyone who is unusual can and will be hauled away, facts be damned, truth be damned.
All in the name of safety.
