Is security worth the price tag?

Here's a small opinion piece from guest columnist Kathleen Braden. She poses an articulate question, "Survival yes, but at what cost? And toward what end?"

Are we so afraid, so insecure that we'll trade our very soul for a moment of false security? More and more people in America are refusing to do so. Enslaving ones' self on the premise of security is not worth the price tag. We can see from history's looking glass that those who make such a deal end up being held to the bargain they agreed to, while their partner, the government, reneges on their end of the collective deal. When the enemy is all rounded up and sequestered, then who becomes the enemy to feed the machine in motion?
