Would you rather be Free or secure?

If you side with free it means that you would rather be independent, and not have to rely on anyone to protect your self.  if you side with secure it means that you would rather sacrifice some of your liberties to be safe.  For example, would rather own your own gun and protect yourself with that or would you rather have the police take care of the threat?  personally i would rather be free and independent

If you give up your freedom for a little security, then you deserve neither.

Those who surrender liberty for freedom will not know security nor do they deserve it.

People cannot know true freedom as it is describing the total lack of self-value, self-worth, self-esteem, and self-respect. Free. A person that is free simple has no value placed on them, freedom only sounds like it should be describing the person who has endless liberties that can be taken at will, to do as they wish. Independent.

I understand what you are trying to say and I might agree with it otherwise. But, still the best non-biased words used to describe liberty is a common defense to the general welfare.

This is a very confusing to the Progressive Left !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Man is a natural freedom seeker.

We want freedom from our limited bodies. We want more speed so we use vehicles, we like to explore no matter the danger like going to space to discover other planets when we know air is limited in outer space. The security of the world is prison to the criminal....and they escape. We all want freedom.

Adventure. Who doesn't want that? Especially with a few lessons added on top to go with the risk?

I'll take my chances on myself... if I fail, so be it.

Side: Free

Ideally a person could not find any freedom without first identifying a necessary security. A fire-arm is just one of many possible security features that humanity has to offer.

Side: Secure

Free and secure come hand in hand. You cannot be either without the other.

No. Socialism can make you secure, but by it's nature you won't be free. I can agree that Socialism is working okay for the drones in Scandinavia but in almost every other case, it doesn't work. Have you seen satellite images of the Korean peninsula at night? Do you know what's going on in Venezuela right now? Did you learn anything from the history of the USSR?

You should have asked the Socialist about Cuba and if it was the Nirvana of her Socialist Dreams.

I really don't see how socialism comes into this debate. Is the fact that I am a socialist relevant in every debate I enter? This is about security, like the right to bear arms and mass surveillance. Last time I checked the US is a frequent user of both, not the socialist countries.

The statement you made is false and incorrect.

No it is not. If you don't have security then you are not free to do as you want. If you don't feel safe then you don't feel free to go and do whatever you please.

If you are not free then you are also not safe, because captivity and deprivation of general rights also result in insecurity.

Side: Secure

If you have neither freedom nor security, then you will surely desire security more than freedom.
