  •  Henry VII took over England and used Star Chamber (9+ / 0-)

    proceeding to destroy people who opposed him.  The king confiscated the property of people convicted of treasonously associating with anyone the king chose to consider objectionable.  

    People could be indefinitely detained without specific charges being disclosed.  Anyone who challenged the king could even be executed on the basis of trumped up charges which did not have to be disclosed to the accused.  

    Back then the technology was not so fancy though.  Henry VII was too cheap to spring for drones when axes and nooses effectively liquidated Henry's competitors.
