"No socialist government conducting the entire life and industry of the country could afford to allow free, sharp, or violently worded expressions of public discontent. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance. And this would nip opinion in the bud; it would stop criticism as it reared its head, and it would gather all the power to the supreme party and the party leaders, rising like stately pinnacles above their vast bureaucracies of Civil servants, no longer servants and no longer civil."
Winston Churchill said that in 1945. It is why GILLARD and her bunch of incompetent fools are doing everything they can to kill freedom of speech. They can't allow criticism because they wish to control everything, the economy and society. They have rooted the economy and are well on the way to do the same to society.
Bunch of jealous incompetent morons the lot of them. How could any person with a modicum of intelligence even consider voting for them. The only persons who could vote for them are those dependent on the government for money and favours.
