"The clipping attached comes from the City of Westminster police’s 'Counter Terrorist Focus List' .... I’m not quite an anarchist -- although some of my best friends are, and the works of people like David Friedman and Georgetown legal philosopher John Hasnas make me unsure. But saying that 'anarchists should be reported to your local Police' is a pretty extraordinary command that should worry everybody. Disliking the state is now enough for your neighbours to report on you, and for plod to take notice." (08/01/11)
