Not because after 9/11 that security measures are enhanced that it has taken away an individual's freedom anymore. On contrary, the more secured an person is, the more freedom he or she has. Protected and safe against terrorists means that you are free from harm; it does mean the the other way around. Would you rather go to a place where there is less security just to enjoy privacy? Or would you like to feel safe and free because of the security? I would rather be free. In short, more security does not mean less freedom, but it means the opposite.
Due to the Patriot act and the NDAA of 2012, and the NSA, we have sacrificed too many freedoms and rights that made this country what it used to be. We need to stop focusing on war and defense, and start focusing on education, research, and a better quality of life for everyone. The founding Fathers of this once great nation would be ashamed of how it turned out.
Whether or not the U.S. Government were the ones who perpetrated the atrocities of 9/11, it is clear that the event ended up working in their favor. The Patriot Act, the TSA, the NSA--our civil liberties have slowly been degrading for the past 12 years. Hello, Big Brother. Hello, INGSOC. The American people have surrendered a majority of their rights and freedoms to the U.S. Government under the guise of "safety." It's a sad state of affairs to see.
So much extra security and NSA watching over all your activity. This makes it harder for you to have more freedom and causes an extra parent nagging and watching you do everything. This is why i believe that after the 9/11 terrorist attacks planned by al-qeuda we have less freedom and more of a secret spy constantly watching our every move electronically.
