The state's "Subversive Activities Registration Act," passed last year and now officially on the books, states that "every member of a subversive organization, or an organization subject to foreign control, every foreign agent and every person who advocates, teaches, advises or practices the duty, necessity or propriety of controlling, conducting, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States ... shall register with the Secretary of State."I have no idea what this law is supposed to accomplish. Groups that want to overthrow the government aren't going to announce the fact or respect said government enough to bother with a forms and filing fees. I'd love to find an interview with the author(s) of this legislation.
There's even a $5 filing fee.
