Democracy Can Never Be Based on Threats

Democracy can never be based on threats - and certainly sending bombs to people falls under the category of totally unacceptable behavior in any democracy.

First, let's make one thing clear: it is so good that state bodies can work together to stop letter bombs from doing harm to famous politicians. Similarly, the arrest of the perpetrator awaiting sentencing by a judge is a step in the right direction. Democracy IS based on law and order...

What is less attractive is the fact that a member of the Republican party has so little sense of democracy as to perpetrate this - just as it would be if he was a member of the Democratic party.

No one should EVER move from serious debate into violence or potential murder. That is NEVER acceptable!

This trend needs to stop. Everywhere!

Terrorism is rampant in so many corners of the world, and we need to stop this. We can never achieve lasting peace when there are people who are so far out that they can't see just how wrong they are when they want to take matters into their own hands.

People should be able to discuss and debate with everybody without EVER crossing the line of mutual respect, and we need this to sink in among all citizens on planet earth if we want the 21st century to become better than previous centuries...

Have a nice weekend everyone.
