Should Free People be Paid to Lose Freedoms?

Telegraph Speakers Corner: Should Free People be Paid to Lose Freedoms?

Free people will be offered cash incentives to lose liberties and limit their freedom as part of a new Government strategy to tackle the democratic epidemic, which could ultimately cost the EU £50bn a year to suppress.

Should free people be paid to lose freedom?

Employers will be encouraged to set up competitions with cash, vouchers and other rewards for people taking up a more oppressed lifestyle.

Similar schemes have worked in the USSR and PRK, while government departments and QANGOs in Britain are already offering jobs and pensions to people who regularly curtail their hard-won rights.

Should the free be paid to abdicate their responsibilities? Should employers monitor their employees' rights and freedoms?

What is the best way to encourage people to lead an oppressed lifestyle?

Sorry, DT, could not resist it.
