Overall the trends Gibson identified have continued. There is a remote possibility that the death penalty will be abolished given the ongoing reputational damage, and the fact neighbouring Malaysia is moving to ban it. However as we know NP ruled nations are generally slow to change; it took decades for the Swiss to reform their banking secrecy laws for example.
In my view, extremes of order are subtly corrosive for most people; ultimately it is healthy to experience occasional chaos and chance events. Micromanaging every aspect of life removes its zest. The chaos of finding oneself lost, as a witness to a motor accident, being in a natural disaster or a large-scale festival is valuable experience. Also, I don't need to brief an American on the benefits and often unusual, random origins of free speech and expression. The P trait is like a mint plant; a fantastic compliment as foliage and food...just don't let it take over the garden.
