Re: @John G Imrie
"Your post contains one flaw in re-engineering, in particular your list Paedophiles, Benefit Fraudsters, Extreme Porn producers, and Extremist’s would all be considered criminals. These activities would have been considered criminal both before and during your life time. Further to this almost all other societies would consider these activities criminal.
Whereas the 1946 poem contains a list of people who would largely not have been considered criminals until such time as the specific government to which Martin refers made these things criminal.."
Extreme Porn producers, and Extremist’s. where not criminals until the government decided that they where (provided the porn was concencal and that there was only extremism not terrorism)
you can make a case for Paedophiles in the same vane just a longer time ago
