Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Then please share those reasons with us rubes. Because I can't see them. I am pretty sure that if you look at - say - the number of death squads and/or political murders pro capita, all three of my pairs would come out the other way around.

I'll freely admit that death squads pro capita is a rather blunt metric for political freedom, but if you can't speak your mind without getting gunned down by goons then you can't very well have a free and open society, can you?
