also, liberati

1) Any person politically to the left of either David Blunkett or GW Bush.
2) One who considers that a dictatorship or police state may not be entirely benevolent.
3) One who prefers to confirm that crime suspects are genuinely guilty before locking them up for life.


1) A high-minded guardian of moral values picked up from a rough translation of some really old book somewhere.
2) One who believes that "human rights" are some form of "progress" and therefore a Bad Thing.
3) One who believe that is vital that punishment must rapidly follow any crime, and that any correlation between
the person comitting the crime and that being punished is a vulgar liberal luxury.

I notice that someone else has already grabbed liberati.org, but does anyone want to design a suitably sinister logo for the Liberati that we can put on badges? ;)

Good definitions, all. I think this should be propagated.
