Mind laws- 1984
(Hat Tip to HAX)
The Europeian parliment has legislated a law which forbids denial of the Holocaust(some) genocides and (some) war crimes inside the EU.
That's fine and dandy isn't it? Nazis could be thrown in to jail in hoardes and Turkey has a much slimmer chans to get themselves a membership in EU.
But... Wait a second. What they really have done is to limit the freedom of speach, one of the fundaments for a democracy. I hate Holocaust deniers. But they should all the same be able to express themselves freely. It's a very slippery slope we are walking on. What's next?
They have in all essentials now made it illegal not to belive in ceartain things! George Orwell only missed by some 23 years...
