Random thoughts on safety and defense

It seems to me that the arguement that we must sacrifice our liberties in the name of safety is the worst kind of cowardice, and is an automatic win for terrorism. Furthermore, the greatest existential threat to the United States is not terrorism. External forces, no matter how intent, no matter how long lived, will not be the destruction of this nation, if we are strong in our will to survive.

However, the fear that our leaders seek to spread amongst us does more to undermine our will to survive than a thousand assualts on missing towers. It is more dangerous than the nuclear destruction of a major city in our nation. It saps our will and saps our strength.
