Depends on the Country and the politics in that Country. If we were to take Ireland. Many people have died over the political situation in the North of Ireland. Say the wrong thing to the wrong person and it may lead to trouble. Or you may be classed as supporting a terrorist group just because you have certain views. To me, you can have your views and not be in favour of anybody been killed or dying. Others would not share that view. They would see you as been on one side or the other. I call these people narrow minded. A person can want a United Ireland and not want any fighting. The simply support the whole idea of a United Ireland. But they want it gained through politics or a vote.
