From The Fourth Checkraise:
Canada's system of Human Rights Commissions has received quite a lot of criticism recently, a lot of it coming from Ezra Levant who was himself a target of a costly investigation for publishing the notorious Muhammed cartoons. Thinking about these issues, I'd actually argue that since the Human Rights approach has been so very efficient in stopping hate, it could also be used to stop other important threats to Canada. For example, terrorism. I therefore propose that we establish "Terrorism Commissions" that operate the exact same way as the Human Rights Commissions. Anyone could file a pre-terrorism complaint against anyone else whose words or actions they suspect might theoretically somehow enable terrorism some day in the future. The government would pick up the tab for the accuser and shield him from any retribution, whereas the accused party would be presumed guilty unless he can conclusively prove that there is no way that anyone anywhere might one day become a terrorist because of him. Truth would not be any kind of defense, of course, and to be as efficient as possible, these Terrorism Commissions should not be burdened by pesky ethics and rules, so that they would have unlimited power of search and seizure at whim. Since liberals and the left generally see nothing wrong with the HRC's, they shouldn't have any problem with identical Terrorism Commissions, right?
