What a Real Totalitarian Government Looks Like

by mike

While things are by no means perfect with our current system of government, it’s important to keep perspective and remember that it could be far far worse.

China ‘executes dam protester’

The government took a man, held a secret trial, held the appeals in secret, and executed him in secret. And before I hear comparisons to U.S. counter-terrorism laws, when I say secret I’m talking about his lawyer going to ask about progress in the case and the possibility of appeal and being told that the “appeal” had already happened and his client had been executed.

The man’s crime? Taking part in a protest against a new dam project and then allegedly killing a police officer.
