A 'secure zone' is useless in keeping the masses safe from terrorism. A terrorist could easily detonate a bomb at the perimeter where there's bottleneck of people entering the 'safe zone'. Enlarging that zone still leaves the newly located bottleneck vulnerable.
It's too easy to bomb the luggage check-in area (where there are hundreds, if not thousands of people squeezed into a small area). Securing that area only leads to a new bottle-neck of people attempting to enter the luggage check-in 'safe zone'.
Therefore, airport 'security' is just a big lie.
'Safe zones' are only good for keeping a select few safe. It doesn't work for keeping *everyone* safe.
When will we be intellectually honest with ourselves, stop trusting in this fake security, and get rid of the market-crushing and productivity-crushing 'security taxes'?
This will spread from airports to bus stations to grocery stores to our front doors until we finally "just say no!" Even if they start shoving one hand down our throats and another up our butts till they shake hands in our intestines, we will continue to obey and thank our owners for making us "safe".
By the time we decide to object, it will be too late, as it was for the Jews in Hitler's Germany who kept thinking someone else would eventually do something.
