Joseph: How much freedom are you willing to sacrifice before you feel safe? Historically, this fear and paranoia has been the beating heart of authoritarian movements. For instance, militarized police, disproportionate military spending, TSA, NSA , highest incarcerated citizens per capita, for-profit prison system etc... Only two types of people benefit from this type of activity; arms dealers and dictators. It's funny how people always seem enslave themselves in the name of "national security". Remember, if you relinquish your freedom for security, you'll eventually have neither.
