Submission + - French President proposes Jail for Terrorist website visitors (

howardd21 writes: "French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is only a month away from an election, argued that it was time to treat those who browse extremist websites the same way as those who consume child pornography. "Anyone who regularly consults Internet sites which promote terror or hatred or violence will be sentenced to prison," he told a campaign rally in Strasbourg, in eastern France. "Don't tell me it's not possible. What is possible for pedophiles should be possible for trainee terrorists and their supporters, too."
Is this a good move for security, or just another step towards a totalitarian society that prohibits free expression?"
