If men through fear, fraud or mistake, should in terms renounce and give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the great end of society, would absolutely vacate such renunciation; the right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of Man to alienate this gift, and voluntarily become a slave. – John Adams
Currently our leaders would like us to believe that terrorism shall annihilate us all. This tactic of fear is then used as the necessity for the TSA to violate our rights and humiliate us. They tell people that A Security Theater will stop the terrorists and make them safe again. This has been proven anything but true. When TSA fails, it is those abused by the TSA who do actually save the day. The fact is, the TSA is a joke, they are ineffective, and the methods being used to trample our rights are fear and fraud. Some have been willing to give up their rights but the thing is, it’s not theirs to give up. Who has any right to walk up to someone else and say, “Sir you need to give up your rights so the rest of us can have the illusion of security.” It is one thing if you want to give up the right yourself, fine that’s your business. However no one has any right to infringe on someone else’s rights. Furthermore, absolutely no one of this world has the right or ability to take it away.
