Privacy or Security?

Recent revelations about the activities of, in particular, the National Security Agency, have rekindled the debate about where to draw the line between preservation of the right to personal privacy and the need to someone assure national security.  Given the assumption that some level of privacy must be sacrificed to provide an acceptable level of security, where should that line be drawn?  How much privacy would you be willing to give up?  How much security do you require?

    The concept of personal security is an Oxymarooooon. Personal privacy....I like privacy and lots of it. Security is a mental construct. In reality there is no such thing. Where is it written that privacy and security are contra-coo? Personally I see them as related to each other...as personal privacy is sacrificed...security deteriorates. This is what all the gun control issues focus around. Give up your personal security and you forfit your privacy. Give up your privacy and you forfit your personal security. So how much would I be willing to give up....none! The question is...on what does your sense of well -being depend? Can you provide water, food, shelter for yourself and one other???? If not why not? What would you have to do to be able to self sustain in the event of a natural or man made disaster? Can you "Red Dawn" it if you needed to?
