Non sequitur. I wasn't considering it a free speech issue because I'm not questioning the court's decision nor the wisdom of the judges. My questions were more to do with the relationship between the "rising coherence in the collective consciousness of an invincible nation fully supported by natural law, a group of over 400 yogic flyers, purusha, rajas and retinue, and Maharishi himself" and the *content* of that freedom of expression and freedom of assembly the judges upheld.
Presumably freedom of expression and assembly existed in the Netherlands before the TM movement made it an invincible nation--hence the man made laws the judges upheld. The paedophiles and beastyphiles had the same freedom of expression and assembly before as they do now. What they did not have was enough support in the collective consciousness to create a political party. To me anyhow, it's more of a content of the freedom of expression in relation to the Maharishi effect issue. And as an aside to Sparaig and a side track perhaps- everything Hitler did on his way to power was perfectly legal and legitimate wihin a democratic system. The history of the 20th century surely shows that just because something is "sick" doesn't mean millions won't be tempted. And just because millions are tempted doesn't mean it isn't *sick*! (Please don't get me wrong--the point of my posts is not to pass moral judgement; hell, anyone might cozy up to a sheep in the heat of the moment on a cold starlit mountain night, when the sound of one's own breath blowing into the pan pipes sends erotic earth-born melodies echoing across the lonely silent valley, and lord knows, world myghology is full of couplings of human and beast, in more ways than one--doesn't Indra himself have the genitals of a goat?) Maybe I should rephrase the question -- how does the formation of the Dutch paedophile/bestiality party during this period (the 89 days of Invincible Holland) and its validation in the courts relate to the Maharishi effect and the creation of heaven on earth and life fully in accord with natural law as advertsied by the TM movement. So far, I don't think that's been addressed in the responses. --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "authfriend" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, MDixon6569@ wrote: > > > > > > In a message dated 7/18/06 1:08:33 P.M.
