Yes, Suresh, but French law stopped death penalty, now. For a long.
BTW, I live just near the place where the first tries of guillotine were
made, with animals, during the French Revolution.
At that time, it was a big progress in the way of killing without
barbary and with respect of equality

You're perfectly right. But French laws about spying and interceptions
are in discussions in France just now.
All countries have to clean one's home about all human rights.
Perhaps we could compete aiming to improve all laws, instead of
justifying bad laws with others.
BUT about the US problem, the question is:
1. *dangerous* coexistence of bad laws + Internet control + global IT
2. need of a more *balanced* power in Internet management and in
Internet economic system,
3. need of *diversity*: complexity sciences demonstrate that lack of
diversity lead to collapse,
4. we are at a crossroad about *choice of civilization*. We must keep
open mixing several models of societies, selecting best parts of several
