I'm looking for a country that has the following attributs: Both has and protects personal and civil freedoms and liberties, has no internet monitoring, regulation, spying, censorship, and laws, (excluding cp of course) it must be a democracy, and its government must be moral and anti coruption. What country is most like this?
I too wish to live in a true democracy where 51% of the people can vote to take the other 49%'s stuff.
Please don't assign political views to me when I'm merely trying to point out the absurdity of the complaint "We are a republic not a democracy."
Yes, I too would like to live in a true democracy where every single issue must be addressed by a costly general election. Also I'd like to somehow not pay for this system.
Because of this thread I skimmed the Wikipedia article on Iceland. The culture is at least pretty cool. Those turf covered houses remind me of something out of an RPG, and by golly I'd like to live in one. It seems like the whole nation respects privacy and personal freedom, not to mention it's beautiful.
Also says the area is volcanically active and that their banking system collapsed and is still reeling. They also eat sheep head
At the very least, the Finnish government is consistently staying pretty damn low on Google's <a href="http://www.google.com/transparencyreport/">transparency report</a> in both the <a href="http://www.google.com/transparencyreport/removals/government/">removal requests</a> and <a href="http://www.google.com/transparencyreport/userdatarequests/">User Data Requests</a> categories.
Sigh, forgot to enable html for that post. Anyway, the URLs should be easy to extract.
