Benjamin Franklin and the security

Security is not only a problem of the 21st century...

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety
Benjamin Franklin

This quotation is dedicated to all the people who think that the new biometric identity cards will prevent terrorism, but which often forget that nothing distinguishes a terrorist from an honest citizen and that consequently the only manner of fighting against this plague would be to read the most intimate thoughts of each one… I am sure that you are a little less enthusiastic now… If it is not the case, I advise you highly the reading of 1984 of George Orwell.
