Good. Central America needs to get its shit together. Wife is currently in Costa Rica now which is one of the decent ones. Seems like Belize is getting it together.

It's a 3-4 hour flight max for 90% of the lower 48. So easy to get to. They should be swimming in tourism money this time of year. Although global warming is kicking our ass the next 10 days here in IL, lol.

High incarceration rate, always the sign of morality, NEVER of fascism. After all, the US has the highest incarceration rate in the world!! Mostly for victimless crimes...

Do no crime - serve no time. Easy.

Some J6 types may have a different opinion.

J6, Kyle Rittenhouse, Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning... Teachers and French speaking Cambodians during Pol Pot's regime... Ukrainian farmers under Stalin, people who refused to mask during the scamdemic, people in jail for tweets, and if things go the way you want, someday you.

Never, ever confuse law with morality, ever!

The J6 protesters had other options but they fell for the trap. I'm not condoning what Dems have done to them, but they are in the same position as the black people that get shot for charging police officers.

Just to add some context to your comparison...

Only reason I thought this article was interesting was caption on reddit is Putin get's 85% of the vote and arrests opposition = dictator. Bukele does the same = role model!

There is a difference if a country is overrun with murders and infighting and a country where law and order is in place. Nothing is absolute, everything is relative. Government should always strive for maximum civil liberties, but a country at war (even with itself) is a different beast requiring different measures at times

<<< This.

When you're getting up to a 100 murder rate, it's time to rebalance civil liberties for a time.

Dude went full Col. Kurtz - jail anybody reasonably suspected of gang activity - and boom. "Viet Cong activity in the sector dropped to a tiny trickle"
