It is not Terror if We do It

Imagine a world in which illogical statements would be automatically nullified and prosecuted. A government would legislate a law saying that an organization – call it corporation, company or municipality – enjoys in the eye of the law the status of a person and … swishhhhh, the Logical Police would appear like Rambo in Vietnam […]

deLiberation Spring Clean
