Because freedom can't protect itself
So this is how it's going to happen. You preform dragnet surveillance so that everybody's actions are known, make ambiguous laws so that you can arrest anyone at anytime for any reason, then have the penalty for breaking these "laws" be to be taken out of the political process. Welcome to a country where the government in power chooses who is allowed to vote.
That's a mold-breaker. Great tkihning!
