sad, recently only was telling two of my friends, one of whom is planning to visit Amsterdam, how everything is legal over there... :(

so thr u go, one more free society comes under the hammer....

which reminds me of one of the discussions i had with my friend on 'freedom'....can one have absolute freedom? can such a society ever exist? should freedom of all people be curtailed just 'coz some can not handle it responsibly enough? do restrictions/ban ever serve their purpose 'n in a way don't they bring about just the opp effect? 'n all those restrictions won't that make us a weaker species in gen?

guess as someone said before -

the average man does not want to be free. he simply wants to be safe.
