Bogeyman Servitude in the Name of Security

I read a statement this morning that came via an email, of an opinion piece written by John W. Whitehead, September 15, 2014 and published online at The Rutherford Institute. The line I enjoyed the most stated:

“The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.”
