TGIF: The Phony Trade-off Between Privacy and Security

Sheldon Richman of The Future of Freedom Foundation (FFF) has written a brilliant essay today in his The Goal is Freedom (TGIF) series. That article is "The Phony Trade-off Between Privacy and Security" I urge you all to read it and to send it to your friends and relatives.

I will close this post with a relevant quote from Richman:

" can’t trade off privacy against security becausethey’re exactly the same thing. Anyone who reads dystopian novels knows that government access to personal information about people serves to inhibit and control them. That’s insecurity."
