      would not be possible.  We have far more sophisticated surveillance technology nowadays and the penalties would be far more severe.  Did the technology to see through walls and watch people in their own bedrooms exist back then?  So now imagine the fundies get into power and use laser microphones, "x-ray vision", and similar technologies to detect people doing that stuff and then drag them out into the street and shoot them because the penalty is summary execution without even a show trial.
