While the article focuses on torture, in most "democracies" more and more rights are restricted and privacy infringed by the government, all in the name of "the war on terror". In democracies the government should be afraid of the people and not vice versa.
My idea of terrorists is shifting more and more from angry, frustrated zealots to the people we've "elected".
Dave: I think people reading this thread are probably interested in human rights anyway. But people can write their representative in the senate to look into things. Some other threads on these forums (especially those dealing with religions) show that many of us have to "improve" their own views as well.
