Le Mont de Sisyphe
My Photo
Location: Zurich, Switzerland

Je suis beau et intelligent. À part cela, je suis juriste helvète, libéral-conservateur, amateur d'armes, passionné d'histoire et de politique. Je suis libéral et capitaliste convaincu car je pense que c'est cela l'état naturel de l'homme. Je parle le "Schwiizerdütsch" avec un accent zurichois, j'adore la bonne musique, la bière et surtout la femme avec qui je vis.

Keep on Blogging!

Guantanamo is in Berlin

A few years back when the US opened Guantanamo and when there were talks about secret CIA prisons where suspected terrorists were allegedly tortured, especially Europeans were among the harshest critics - and rightly so. The end does not always justify the means. Western democracies must keep their core values alive, above all. Otherwise their fight is not worth fighting.
Now, however, it is not about mere security and the protection of human lives through questionable methods. Now, the only concern at stake is the government's money, in other words government's immediate and most important interest. And now, Germans, French or Dutch suddenly lose all their noble reservations. They do expect their governments to buy stolen bank data although ordinary citizens would be committing a criminal offense if they did the same thing. When it comes to the government's core interest, everything else becomes secondary. The citizens welcome their government's spending of taxpayer money in order to reward criminal thugs, only because it serves their Nanny State directly. In such case, the State and its bureaucrats are above the laws. This is the perfection of the total State.
Disapproving of the government's use of criminal methods in order to save lives while approving of the government using criminal methods in order to finance its unsustainable and unjust Welfare State is a sign of a deep and very concerning moral depravation.
