Basically, the government can arrest you without evidence. They don't have to tell you what you're supposed to have done. Your family and friends will be jailed for up to five years if they tell anyone, from their neighbors to the media, that you've been arrested and any communication with a lawyer will be recorded. And as ryttu3k said, the voicing of anti-government (or anti-military) sentiments will get you arrested.

purple_snitch:That's a moot point, because the next bill Howard is planning to push through will ban all laughter.
It made me laugh and then it made me really, really scared.
