Peoples say these are for safety but it's another attempt by the govt. to control people, similar to ID cards. Interestingly we are also fighting 2 wars to bring peace. Makes you wonder if George Orwell was right.
WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.
I'm concerned about the health impact not so much as privacy - nobody can say that they're 100% safe, because that had been said of CT scans for decades, and last year we find out that they "deliver far more radiation than previously believed and may contribute to 29000 new cancers each year, along with 14500 deaths."
Scan people, or get blown up?
Which one will do most harm?
I'd rather be scanned than frisked. I'd had overenthusiastic frisking in the past....I doubt there can be overenthusiastic scanning though.
Also - If they prevent one asswipe from blowing up one plane that's good enough.
