And incrediBILL justifying anything by saying the military do it is truly bizarre
You must have a bug about me, I didn't justify anything, I was only making a statement of fact because it's been standard practice for a very long time yet nobody lost their right to free speech.
You missed my point in that people didn't start whining that King George tool their newspaper away, they maintained their freedom of speech for all those years regardless of the military tactics used, people won their freedoms, etc.
The USA only stopped being racially segregated a couple of decades ago also
Where I lived it wasn't racially segregated so please don't use that as an example, it's silly, but we DID all have phones, albeit in my area we had a 'party line'.
FWIW. some parts of the US still seem like segregated today, don't fool yourself, but that's a different thread.
