Arghhhh! Robert: does it really seem to you that this security stuff
is appropriate ?? From my view, it's blown way out of proportion. All
of that energy and attention and money is only serving a purpose to
make people more 'security aware', i.e. watching their neighbor
more closely, their co-worker more closely. making people more afraid,
"plugging up holes" whereever there is a hole to plug up, making
walls and boundaries - the metaphorical and the physical - thicker
and taller between people. And my goodness, using this huge ugly
beaucracy called the U.S. government to step in and 'help'!

How in the world is this 'security' frenzy going to help humans on this
planet be better (live longer, healthier, smarter, stronger, etc.) ?
