It has no bearing on the discussion, but to get it out of the way quickly, assume I am an anti-capitalist liberal who is also extremely liberal when it comes to civil rights.
Checks and balances between the populus, but I see no reason to allow public authority to arbitrarily harm people. Quite the opposite - People need to know that they'll be punished when they do something wrong and not for no apparent reason - That could lead to chaos, revolutions, armed rebellions and other inconvenient problems.
...and this is what happens in fascist states.
The gov't does get to arbitrarily harm people.

I am saying I don't see valid reasons to believe the informer without evidence - Just because it happened in some past fascist regimes it doesn't mean it would happen again, specially considering human societies are different so many things would not work again - Namely a fascist State wouldn't use Christianity but probably be hostile towards it
The informer needs evidence? Lol. What for? There is no trial. There is no convincing anyone of anything. There is only someone who used to work here or live here and now they don't.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in...
