90. It's not the ten minutes in the airport.

 

Though that in itself is invasive, annoying and utterly pointless. It's the spying, the warentless wiretapping, the email invasion, the torture, the indefinite detention, the needless wars and looting of our economy. Those are the things that we capitulated to out of cowardice. Those are the freedoms, capital and lives we'll never get back.

9/11 was a professional one off, it was no amateur job and it accomplished exactly what it was supposed to. Being afraid of it somehow happening again as a justification for giving up your rights is silly. There was no need to do it again. All they have to do is play video of it now and the easily led shit their pants all over again.

You'll never convince me that giving up freedoms was the right thing to do even if it meant attacks every month.
