Security is one of the most meaningful words in the English language. According to the dictionary it means freedom from fear, anxiety or care; freedom from doubt or uncertainty. To one man, security calls up a picture of a little house which he owns free and clear, so that nobody can ever take it away from him. Another man thinks of protection against the hazards of illness and accident....Obviously written by an insurance company, but still POWERFULLY TRUE. Freedom from fear, freedom from uncertainty. In other words, SECURITY IS FREEDOM FROM THE PEOPLE WHO WANT FREEDOM. As I discussed before in the context of prison, the wall-haters who want freedom above security are criminals and psychopaths. The job of civilization is to keep criminals and psychopaths from ruining security for normal people. Government pushing Our Freedoms and Individual Liberty has given us freedom for psychopaths, which is tyranny for normal people. Constant fear caused by fake "terrorists" and invading armies of "migrants", constant fear caused by ordinary criminals who can't be held in prison or executed, constant fear caused by debt instead of savings. Constant doubt and uncertainty caused by light-speed switches in culture. The freedom-lovers, the criminals and psychopaths, have everything now. On the financial side they are free to steal everything, so they do. On the cultural side they are free to assume any gender or race if it gives them an advantage, so they do. On the governmental side they are free to burn down a state, so they do.
