Sucurity and human rights

Weird times. While we scurry as societies to protect ourselves from mysterious terrorists (some who do exist), we seem willing to give up or trample on basic human rights. It might be the prisoners in Gitmo (Guantanamo Bay) who exist in a lawless limbo... some are children and have been there 3 years. It might be a Canadian citizen secreted off to Syria to be tortured with at least some Canadian government complicity. And all this frees regimes in Egypt, Uzbhekistan and elsewhere to go at their citizens...all in the name of security.

Here's to showing the world what power looks like with integrity and respect for humanity...I'm for it.
