Chicken Soup with Orwellian nutjob Nicolas Sarkozy...

After reading this story I'm even more convinced that terrorists are a lot less crazy in comparison to elected officials (and possibly the voters who elect them) than ever.

Hoping to capitalize on the public hysteria precipitated by the homicidal rampage of Mohamed Merah (one month before Sarkozy's re-election) he's proposing legislation that would criminalize the simple act of a "repeat visit" to any "extremist website."

Hysteria can win elections, but it rarely solves any of society's problems.

First on the list of legal problems is the definition of "extremist website." Will the public be told that, like pornography, we can't define it but we know it when we see it? One can easily imagine a day when politicians define "extremist websites" as any website that opposes them. Perhaps Sarkozy would define my website as "extremist."

Anyone who goes along with Sarkozy's Orwellian nutjob proposal is only going to convince terrorists of the legitimacy of their cause. In fact, I'm going to try to find a few "extremist" websites and "browse" them in Sarkozy's honor.

As always...terrorism is not the product of deranged minds. Terrorism is precipitated by people who can't get through the day without puting someone less powerful or simply less popular in his or her place.

Tally Ho Nic'
