War on Accidents
more people died in the United States in September 2001 from car accidents than from terrorism, but we have no Global War on Accidents. By contrast, the practice of labeling political opposition as "terrorists" and using supposed "anti-terror" laws to infiltrate and sabotage their activities, threatens democracy everywhere.
Richard Stallman, speach at ITU Kaleidoscope 2009, as quoted in Feb 2010 IEEE Communications.
