Would you rather have an abundance of privacy/freedom, or an abundance of safety/security?

Freedom and privacy. Most people prefer our bloated welfare state unfortunately

I can provide my own safety and security. Thank you Founding Fathers, 2nd Amendment, NRA, Colt, Smith & Wesson, and all the rest of the gun manufacturers as well as the great state of Texas!

Ben Franklin said something to the effect of “those who would sacrifice liberty for security, deserve neither.”

I don’t think these can be separated. The whole point of safety and security is to assure privacy and protect freedoms. Either without the other yields neither.

Should the government provide the security or the freedom?

The security that protects the freedom.

They don’t even protect the freedom

The question says abundance. So you can have an abundance of freedom and some protection, or an abundance of protection and some freedom. Abundance is the key word.

8% of libertarians are very confused.

What good is it to be free if you live in fear. According to Maslow’s hierarchy it needs, physical safety and security comes before freedoms.

I’m surprised how many dems want privacy/freedom when there main narrative is about taking both of those things away, by way of their love of government.

I’ll fall on the side of freedom. Freedom, like trust, it’s very difficult to get it back once it’s lost.

Would I rather live in the Wild West or modern day Singapore? Singapore, hands down.

I’ll trade it all for education - then we could cut through all of this fear-mongering. 😱

The 2nd Amendment allows me to create my own safety and security.

And the shots you miss create dangers for bystanders.

Definitely privacy and freedom. The latter is completely worthless without it.

In reality, safety and security. Maybe it is about where I was raised, but safety is more important to me than liberty.

If you answered "safety" you should probably leave the US.

Because it’s not safe??

No, because privacy is infinitely more important. You are responsible for your own personal safety.

I’m fine. Let me alone. S & W handles my security.

Maybe. Depends on that idiotic "trigger lock" that the lawyers made them put on it.

Privacy I could take or leave, but I love freedom. I'll handle my own security.

As Ben Franklin once said, "any society that will give up a little liberty to gain a little security, will deserve neither and lose both".

Some of the most true words ever spoken.

Privacy all the way, that’s why I avoid companies like Google, Facebook and Amazon who’s business model is literally to spy on everything you do and sell that data to advertisers while companies like Apple put privacy at the core of everything they do and make money selling you an actual product, not fleecing your privacy.

There is no security without freedom.
