Rare Risk and Overreactions – Schneier on Security

posted terribly early in the morning by Constantinos. Filed under Food for thought, Rant

I do not believe this article can ever get enough press. Problem is it never will get much (despite being published on Wired and Bruce Schneier’s blog, as well as many other places).


I won’t talk about personal liberties, tax dollars being wasted, or even people being (un)reasonable. No matter what’s going on around us, we always all have a choice. We may not like the choices we have, but we still have them. My problem with all this is that I see the world fast approaching where people are told they do NOT have a choice about anything. 1987 came and went, but at this rate we probably won’t have to wait for 2087. Lock every person up, lock the jailers up, throw away the keys and kill everyone. Then maybe, just maybe, there won’t be any dangers around.

Grow up. Live your life.
