In the UK, the courts are ordering secret injunctions to prevent the press from discussing certain topics, sealed to the extent that even their existence is not supposed to be a matter of public record. In the US, the courts are awarding career-destroying damages against a blogger who simply told the truth.

So, what now? How are we supposed to deal with governments who allow this kind of behaviour? They’ve been legitimately voted in, so apparently the public condones their actions. We’re seeing in Wisconsin that protest does no good. Short of declaring my house an independent state, I’m genuinely at a loss for what to do next.
