comment What is the difference between “this” and “that”
I like the emotional distance part. I had an intuitive grasp for that concept, but could not put it in words the way that book does.

comment Should I use past tense when I'm asked to describe a picture?
On this picture? I distinctly remember a teacher saying that you are supposed to say in the picture.

comment What is a more descriptive name for an event organized in the following way. I am sure it is not a webinar, although it was called that.
@HotLicks Or "webture": web + lecture.

Ok. I'll edit the 'incorrect' statement. But I still think it is relevant. It provides a possible explanation how the phrase appeared. Additionally, the name of the OP sounds Czech, so he may be interested in this.

comment What do you call a country where the legal system is observed
@Jim I cannot imagine what other context could change the meaning of the sentence… The quote is from a private conversation, so I would not post more of it. To summarize, it goes on like this: it lists some of those rights, concluding with "freedom of speech", and then argues that there are cases when it is legitimate for those rights to be restricted, and that the case of a rapper who was banned from a popularity contest because he sings about raping a girl in his basement is one of those cases.

comment What do you call a country where the legal system is observed
I haven't stated that explicitly, but I do care about that distinction. I am after a positive meaning, but I welcome the opportunity to learn how to call the to-letter obedience as well.

comment What do you call a country where the legal system is observed
Can I say "law-abiding country"? I used to think that law-abiding goes together only with a citizen or so, but apparently the Internets seem to say it about countries as well…
