The Fallacy of 100 Percent Security

As an American, we are going through the embarrassment of a government that is actively violating our privacy and then saying things like, “If you’re not doing anything illegal, you shouldn’t be worried.”

The president then offered the explanation the other day that Americans can’t have 100 percent security and 100 percent privacy.

That’s true. But here’s the thing: you can’t have 100 percent of EITHER. The government is using this argument as a smokescreen. As Americans, we are giving up our rights to privacy all the time because we want to feel secure. The government readily plays on this fear. We need to realize that 100 percent security will only ever be a feeling and not a reality.

Until we realize we can’t have 100 percent of either, we can’t debate what balance we want. Until we wake up to the abuses power will continue to take away from us, they will gladly sell us the feeling of security to keep taking away our rights to privacy.

  1. I think that the gov has its fingers in Google. While its true those who do right have nothing to fear (at the moment) its the subversive nature of what the government is doing which is just wrong.

    1. That’s what I think. Those who have “nothing to fear” SHOULD fear. They should DEMAND more of their government.
