There have been many attempts to introduce legislation that is ultimately undemocratic and counterproductive. But THIS time the law seems APPROPRIATE. The fundamental flaw in the current article is that having failed to identify a specific problem in the new legislation the current article and others like it seem to prefer to revert to their traditional complaint about the much wider issue. But even people who are uncomfortable with the underlying policies can understand that those who wish to deliberately harm the state should not complain if their rights to receive privileges from the state are affected. Nor should they enjoy immunity from claims by those whose interests they would deliberately harm. By way of analogy, all of us recognize the crucial function of freedom to criticize. But we also recognize the importance of protection in the laws of slander and libel.
