It's a fairly self-explanatory title, really biggrin.gif

What would it take, do you think, to wake the people of the UK up to the realising of the value of liberty (and the willingness to be involved in taking it back)?

The UK already has liberty, it just doesn't take it to such insane lengths as the United States.

You mean overthrow the Queen?

 

Edit: Oh well. In that case I think the US is more in need of liberty than anyone else. But with agencies like NSA, it won't be happening anytime soon.

nly people who worry about it are narcissistic paranoid weirdos who feel special, and don't understand at all what it is and how it works.

 

Yes, not wanting to be spied on by your own government is being a "paranoid weirdo"

If you have no issues with this (i.e you have nothing to hide) then clearly you have no issue with the government putting CCTV in every room of your house. After all, you have nothing to hide.

I have plenty of liberty. Censoring Rape Porn and Child Porn is not a crippling blow to how free I feel.

you can always try mock UK peoples for any kind of "Liberty" they missing / don't have, be aggressive and almost insulting as possible, BUT you must remain factual in your stance.

 

That would irk lots of peoples about it, and they try to counter by gaining what they supposedly doesn't have.
