Not authoritarian enough, in my view. Human beings don't self-regulate. They need to be controlled. If the State doesn't impose limits, people go looking for them. Should you be unsafe walking down a street in your suburb? No but you are because the State releases repeat offenders. If a wild animal was loose on that street it wouldn't last a few minutes before the Authorities acted. Why should it be different if the predator is human?

fear mongering

No thanks. I prefer the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Hard to be brave when your assailant carries a weapon you're not allowed to.When I was once threatened with being killed (shot) by indigenous Australians I asked the cop what I'm expected to do if the black offenders came down my drive way with petrol bombs. The cop looked me in the eye, and I kid you not, said: "call us". God help us!
