Freedom VS Security: Dangerous WordsSubmitted by Treubig on Tue, 08/20/2013 - 23:00
So what have we learned from history? I've learned to never give up my Liberty for a little bit of temporary security. I'm sure most of the people here may agree. Well then why is it that we let people in public office get away with starting a debate and even talking about how we need to find the balance between security and freedom? Don't believe me? Want some proof?
"In meeting those threats, we have to strike the right balance between protecting or security and preserving our freedoms." - President Obama
How, in 2013 can this be the debate? How have we forgot thousands of years of history? How can we allow aggressive war by the state compromise our Liberties? How have we lost the way of peace, prosperity and Liberty? Is this going to be the debate that enslaves our children and grandchildren to the state? Is this how our generation wants to be remembered in the history books?
The state does not care about you, instead it cares about its own power. The promise of security is always the excuse to strip the people of Liberty. War, whether created by the state or a foreign threat, is the health of the state by the consent of the people.
We as humans must not be fooled again nor give consent. Liberty is as vital as breath and once lost will not return. This is not a political argument, this is a humanity argument. If Liberty is lost, you wont be able to have a political argument. If you think what the IRS did is bad, just think if the police did political persecution. That would be deadly. Think for yourself!
