    se·di·tion (s -d sh n). n. 1. Conduct or language inciting rebellion against the authority of a state. 2. Insurrection; rebellion.



    Foxfyre opened her Rebellion thread with a disclaimer clearly outlining her OP's hypothetical nature, to, I'm assuming, potentially counter or dissuade a reader with judicial or federal authority launching proceedings against a percieved threat contained within the OP. Would you take similar precautions should you submit a similar or identical OP for public scrutiny, considering state agents may take an interest? It's common knowledge they search and filter the web looking for leads.

    Personally, I doubt anything I've written on here qualifies as a threat. Nor do I believe any of my online activities have been cause for concern among the security services.

    Actually I'm much more concerned about the government's failure to prosecute the deserving.

    At this point, I have no fear of anything that I say. I still believe we have some freedoms, speech being paramount of them.

    Why? Do you refute the idea that government agents monitor and filter the internet searching for leads and threats? Even the press do it.

    Another general and very vague question. It is like asking me if I like kids.

    The only answer can be "Show me the kid"!

    How is my OP "vague"? I've clearly illustrated the point I'm trying to make. How on earth could I be any clearer?

    I answered her thread.

    As for sedition, I would like to hope we are not quite there yet in the United States as far as prosecuting people for sedition.

    I'm very cognizant of what I post so I don't trigger some minor gov't functionary to ask for an unmarked black van to be dispatched to my residence under the auspices of the Bush admin-drafted *cough* "patriot act :barf: Does your country have as drastic Orwellian, anti-terra laws like the U.S. does?
