The whole world knows it: Dissent against an all mighty government ends in jail and oppression against those who dare challenge dictatorships in democracy clothes.
In the past, those who spoke against oppressive regimes were captured, dragged out of their homes and sent to gulags. No trial, no charges, no justice.
Today, western countries have no physical gulags, at least not as they existed 50 years ago, but there are mental and political prisons where people who want liberty and freedom are still prisoners.
Challenging violent regimes renders people unwarranted violations of their civil, constitutional and universal rights. The latest example is a group of pro-independence politicians in Catalonia, who have been sent to prison for carrying out their duty; that which voters asked them to do.
