But today, can anyone lay such claims? More so after those horrific butchery of innocent lives?
Those who complain about 'big' government are the very same ones who decry such questionings of individuals. So what is the austerity driven police force to do, but to simply haul up 'suspects' and send them for evalutions the old fashion way instead of modern monitoring efforts silently over the communications line for productivity to weed out the truly 'warped of mind'?
If one had done no wrong, then just follow the un-invasive cooperations guides. It doesn't cost much, but failures to do so would cost society much more. No one is charged, only evaluted based upon their own freedom of expression which sounded in direct conflict to the well being of society to the tune of murdering them all.
There is danger in the committment to passionate causes. I had seen it myself several times, on how power corrupts and absolute corrupts absolutely. Seeming honest idealistic humans trying to create change, but over time, as change becomes difficult, their patience wears out and their mind snaps, with anger and hatred to fellow humans.
Hitler was pure evil from start. But humans such as Mao, Stalin, Brevik, Holmes, etc are examples, started out as ordinary humans seeking change, but over time, turned into humanslaying devils without a care to innocent lives.
Not many of humankind can control that love, compassion and raging desire for changes such as the great Mother Theresa, Ghandi, Suu Kyi or Nelson Mandela.
Thus, prevention is better than cure, espacially during these times, to prevent the further slaughter of innocents. If we are to be true friends, then that responsibility lays in us to calm those in the danger zones down and rationalize with them first,and only if that fail, do we seek for help. They would have done the same for us for none is perfect or sane 100% of the time when stresses of life strikes.
It is our families, relatives and friends that truly matters, not the world alone. They are our support and strength, and the very reason we wake up to face the next morning. Combined, rationally, we can change our world for the better, and help those whom have lost patience or even mind.
