Kim Dotcom: the new Litmus Test of the Police State
Submitted by Mark Hubbard on Wed, 2012-02-08 23:30
Mark Hotchin is still not charged with anything ( http://www.solopassion.com/nod... ) but Kim Dotcom is eclipsing him as the new test of how far New Zealand is down the road to our serfdom under a Police State.
With all the provisos of how I believe IP infringement to be stealing, watch all the following Campbell Live clip from last night - can't embed sorry, and Linz you'll just have to get yourself over the opening singing bit - the commentary from the middle is significant:
Then remember how the Keystone cops in NZ raided this man and his family (including nannies and three children) from helicopters, fully armed and breaking doors down with axes.
And the goons are not stopping their complete disregard for property rights and freedoms yet. Just this morning from http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/...
I don't like resorting to swearing, I've got this old fashioned part of me that says if you resort to swearing you've lost the argument, but this over-the-top goonish thuggery from the State, a State that should only exist to protect and defend our rights and freedoms, is fucking mental.
I now hope Kim Dotcom gets out from under this and sues the arse off every individual hiding behind Nanny's rotten ruddy skirts to perpetrate this ongoing offense again every individual in New Zealand, because if they can do this to Dotcom, they can do it to you. Mind you, as with Alan Hubbard and Mark Hotchin, how he's supposed to do that when they've cut him off from all his money (his wife has no money to live on and exists on charity), he has the tax-base of New Zealand and the US being used against him, and the time this will take, going from Hotchin's case, will be measured by years.
Rand do we need a Kiwi Spring. We're way, way, way out there beyond the free, classical liberal society. Looking back, I can't even see it anymore, it's just a thing of nostalgia.
