Which would you rather lose, your freedom, your security, or both?
The Homeland Security Act infringes on constitutionally-guaranteed rights and freedoms in the name of security. The House failed to pass by 2/3 majority yesterday. Now they're bringing it up for a vote again tomorrow to be decided by a simple majority. Tell your congressman how you feel about that. today.
There is no security with freedom, but you have no freedom with security for the ultimate in security is slavery.... so I would rather live free than secure...
I would rather lose the fear of losing either, or both. "We have nothing to fear but fear itself."
Neither, one will lead to the other, that's the way it has always been. H
Security is simply a state of mind...we all think we are secure for particular reasons. People tell me...oh you work for a large corporation, your job is secure...there are many misconceptions in that regard about security. In fact, none of us are really secure...there is always something out there that we are not protected against. The biggest sham or scheme is the world is to sell security. Freedom, on the other hand, is a far different story. My freedom is worth fighting for...my freedom is worth my life. My freedom is everything that makes life worth living. My freedom is what says that no other man owns my soul. If I have to lose with a fight...it will most definitely be security that goes first. WB
security. because freedom is what makes a country great whereas security is something that you can make yourself. no one is secure but by not worrying about all the propoganda that the governments and media throw at us, you can get the sense of security back.
This question addresses what Rousseau called the "social contract," i.e., the line between individual freedom and government control. Total lack of government leads to anarchy while too much government leads to tyranny. I subscribe to what Thomas Jefferson said - "That which governs least governs best."
