4. Freedom of Movement
The Transportation Security Agency tells the whole story. Americans are now man-handled every time they want to fly. We can’t carry big water bottles. Every American is a suspect. The government has brought the efficiency of the DMV to our airports.
Of course, some security is necessary at the airports. However, there is no reason why more efficient private companies can’t take point. The government has only shown a penchant for abusing passengers. These abuses are directly attributable to the 9/11 fallout.
