9. We have ceded our security . . .
We have ceded our security measures to the most scaredy-cat, pants-wettingest nervous nellies. We have given up on our own judgment and common sense, and decided to throw in with people who would, like Frank Burns in that M*A*S*H episode, check their toothpaste for explosives. Rather than say, "You know something? I'm going to live my life free from fear. I will take reasonable precautions, but I'm not going to be stampeded into jumping from every shadow by people who would abscond with an infant over fear of a pacifier," we have communally decided to hand over all the authority to the milquetoasts who are afraid of everything.
