Do you believe that coercion takes place, even if highly illegal and generally regarded as totally immoral?
Do you believe that people in power play with words and shades of meaning to avoid legal proscriptions to coercive measures?
Do you believe it is a fact of history that our culture has always done this?
Do you believe it is wrong that the people in power take advantage of the "little people" in law enforcement and intelligence, making them the scapegoats when it happens?
Do you have a solution?

What's wrong with educating people about their rights?
