In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

These "isn't it worth saving a life?" arguments surprise me. They sound a lot like the "think of the children!" arguments.

If you believe looking under your clothes and/or touching your genitals in the name of security is OK, where is the line for you?

What WOULDN'T be OK in the name of security?
