Letter: Citizens should denounce the bad

How many people suddenly moved from their homes, jobs, activities, etc. saying nothing about their reasons for doing so? asks J. Sully.

“If hacking is your problem, do you have a problem?” said the man punching on his laptop.

That statement reminded me of Prime Minister David Cameron of Britain who closed the prestigious paper News of the World because one woman had been hacked to death by the telephone system there.

How many people suddenly moved from their homes, jobs, activities, etc. saying nothing about their reasons for doing so? How many others suddenly started taking pills, buying creams, see the doctor for incidental occurrences, unable to state clearly what happens to them?

How many others develop 20th century diseases that were unheard of some years ago?

Lawyer Richard Humphrey of Ontario has stated that: “The use of magnetic rays to blackmail, coerce, cause pain, damage, injure another human being constitutes criminal actions against the person and civil authorities must be informed of their occurrences.”

In other words, the obligation of every citizen is to announce what is good and denounce what is bad—that should take place in every civilized society.
