Comment: That's how I felt when I lived in Europe in the 80s.

(See in situ)


That's how I felt when I lived in Europe in the 80s.

I felt FAR less free in Europe. I mean for pete's sake, cops could stop you for no other reason than just to check your papers or just because they felt like it (not kidding).

That was UNHEARD OF in the United States at that time.

Fast forward 20 years... the situation has flipped 180. Well not quite. In Europe, everything you do is still spied on. There's no bill of rights. And cops can still stop you just to check your papers or if they feel like it, but.....

... do I really have to say more about what the HELL is going on in our country now? WOW
