It is just people pointing out the obvious: The U.S.A. is no better than Ecuador, and possibly worse than Ecuador when it comes to human rights. We have torture, secret rendition, indefinite detainment, government sanctioned gun running, extrajudicial assassination, selective enforcement of tax laws against perceived enemies, and selective non-enforcement of criminal laws for the wealthy and politically connected.
We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
-C. S. Lewis
