He wants to forbid doing things which pose “a risk of alarm or distress”.
»They would include a ban on broadcasting and a requirement to submit to the police in advance any proposed publication on the web and social media or in print.«
And this is the death of Free Speech for anyone who might be distressing to others, which means that Cameron announced to kill a human right.
It’s easy for you to just claim that I am brainwashed. Then you don’t have to think about my arguments. But until now you only provided opinions without any information to back them (at least about the points I actually raised).
Don’t assume that I think that the European Court of Human Rights is perfect. There is no perfect state. This is why “but we’re waging inhuman wars, how can we be good” is no compelling argument. What I am saying is that Cameron already proved that he is much worse than what we have right now.
And consequently British Rights would be eroded Human Rights which in addition to being eroded would only apply to those who Cameron (or whoever comes next) happens to like.
For wild overescalation in RPGs: I was never in a group in which the majority reacted like that. If someone was insulted in a town, only characters who are explicitly drafted as unstable personalities would instantly escalate to deadly force. And that would always have consequences - though when the consequences get lasting depends on how jaded the involved characters are. If you play psychopaths, don’t expect them to follow the protocol. If you shove someone in a seedy bar, you don’t expect him or her to follow protocol, either.
We once played a session where a player expected the other characters to follow that escalation protocol and started with heavy emotional aggression. He did not understand the warning as the other character bared the claws - which said “yes, you are stronger on the emotional side. If you don’t stop, I’ll cut you apart.”
Only part I miss: Having acoustic cellos with enough power to hail music down on an audience on 100k people during an open air festival. Would be interesting to calculate the strength needed to wield that…
