Random thoughts on Manchester attack

Our society is so weak in the past few years; we have never been so patient to those who are threatening public security. Most of people only know that they should show their sympathy to victims, but don’t have the voice to punish the terrorists! What is called “human rights” and “tolerance” are only applicable to those who deserve it, instead of every one in the world; our tolerance can not reclaim the group who have narrow ideas about our society. The only efficient way is brutal punishment and the regain of cruel death penalty to a certain group of people. And the trial and execution should be public so that it can bring the awe to those who will potentially threaten the country. Kindness is not the common character of people; but servility is!

Meanwhile, our technology for safety seems only aim at ordinary people but useless for true terrorists. A reasonable idea is to compromise personal privacy and share some data of the society to social information tech companies which should be in co-operation with government to detect the potential terrorists; and social network and other information tech companies should shut down their service in certain countries, or even innovate new technologies to disturb the communication signals in those places. Anyway, it is the time that we should withdraw our human rights, tolerance and privacy from those uncivilised people!

Terrorists don’t want us become omniscient authoritarian society; they want us change our culture and living style into theirs. Francisco Franco dictated Spain for 39 years, but prevented Spain from being red and made Spain an economic power again (27% annual increase of production for 14 years). Sometimes we need autocracy to protect freedom.

We should talk less about doctrine (whether he or she is nazist or communist) but think more about solution of problems. If there had been no Franco but a leader supported by Soviet Union, do you think Spain would have freedom? It would have become countries such as Poland, Romania etc. during 1950s to 1980s with restrictions of thinking from communists. And you can see even after 25 years of restoring, Eastern countries are still less developed than Spain, East Germany is still poorer than West Germany. Freedom is always relative not absolute. Absolute freedom tolerates evil ideas as well. Terrorists also have the freedom to ask for being tolerated by avoiding death penalty. If so, our safety is always under threat. I don’t think freedom without safety is the freedom we want.
