TSA: Airport Security is Impossible says William Stone III

The concept of “airport security” is actually Access Control.  ”Access Control” is a catch-all concept that basically boils down to the idea of controlling who can get into a particular area and who can’t.

The reason that access control is impossible in an airport is very, very simple.  The underpinning of all access control is this concept:

Deny access to everyone but a few individuals.

John Green on Freedom: Blog posting by Economist David Henderson

It has become so standard, when a family has had a tragedy, for a family member to advocate some further restriction on freedom even if that restriction would create more tragedies than it would prevent. It's kind of understandable. When a family member dies, we feel so impotent. We want to do something. I've never had something like John Green's tragedy of losing a beautiful vibrant little girl. The closest I've come is my brother's suicide, which was a shock, but the suicide of a 22-year old is different from the murder of a 9-year old.
