The famous Spanish everyday The country reports a frightening scenario in which the Spanish central government makes a national mobilization and “security law” that force “temporary” citizens to give up their rights in times of future public health crisis or emergencies such as those in the coronavirus pandemic.
The law is currently at the level of a single proposal but concerns are raised to raise public health issues to the level of ‘national security’ – as The country spells out based on a translation of reporting it: “Any person of legal age has an obligation to enforce the‘ personal obligations ’required by the competent authorities, following the guidelines of the National Security Council, if a state of crisis is declared by Spain. In this case, all excluded citizens must abide by the orders and instructions issued by the authorities.”
This sounds not enough to suggest in fact nothing can be infinite about the comprehensive legal use of state authorities to access people’s personal lives only on the grounds of a national crisis. And going forward there is little or nothing that sets a clear standard for what legally constitutes such a crisis.
Throughout the demise we have already seen many areas of Europe, especially Canada, where government officials have essentially wielded such enormous power to force citizens to conform. Now Spain intends to permanently write this scenario into law.
Consider how far-fetched this Orwellian proposal could be, as reported in The country:
In the event that a state of crisis is declared in Spain (‘state of interest of National Security’ is the name given by law), the authorities may also continue to temporarily claim all other property, intervention or temporary employment requirements or the suspension of all separate activity.
Proponents of future legislation seek to assure the public that the “fee” will later follow; however, it clearly gives permanent and indefinite power to any ruling government that decides to implement it in accordance with a real or fabricated “crisis” .- READ MORE
