Safety vs. Freedom

The eternal struggle continues.
No single answer will please everyone.

(I posted this in S&P, but no one responded... maybe it belongs here instead.)

Note: In desperate need of a cure...

"They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
-- Benjamin Franklin

To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

I don't understand what you are saying. Could you ellaberate?

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

I believe America chose safety.
Oh well, freedom - it was fun while it lasted.

I think we should have cameras on each and every person 24 hours a day.

Hey, unless you're doing something wrong why would you be against it?

Think about how the crime rate would drop.
