I liked Timothy Garton Ash's soundbite in the Guardian yesterday:
"What is needed is a change of paradigm: from liberty through security to security through liberty."
The most effective defense against terrorism is to be not afraid. Sadly the government
don't even say don't panic, in a corporal Jones like frenzy, they say "danger here! danger there! danger everywhere! But we'll protect you by slicing away your freedoms."
