I was referring to our previous debates about the cost to society of "protection" measures. If we locked up anyone who looked at a child, been accused of a crime, or Googled for "Osama Bin Laden" then we might, at the cost of our liberties prevent some crime.

I think it's too high a cost personally and have no desire to live in an extreme police or nanny state. We seem to disagree on this.

I don't remember supporting any of your examples per se, but there are obviously degrees in everything so I presume you are taking an extreme stance, which rarely works to prove a point.

Perhaps we should start by exploring just what "liberty" actually is? I mean it's obviously a concept subject to various conditions and limits, so what are the limits and who gets to decide what they are, and why?

Do you think you would be happier in an anarchic commune?
