Freedom: scares politicians, so 9/11, 7/7 etc. were just what they wanted so that they can ‘justify’ the gradual move towards dictatorship and police state.
Justice: has not really been applied since it was overwhelmed by law; it needs wisdom and judgement and truth, so totally beyond lawyers and courts.
Dignity: for years now, governments have ground us down, applying more and more petty laws that give us no choices and make any communal events too difficult to be worth organising. Dignity needs some degree of pride in self and community and that has been suppressed by fear of litigation and the petty officials covering their arses, so communication and concern for others have almost gone.
