But even to the extent that I do value privacy, I feel oppressed enough by crime that I would give up more privacy than I already have if it means the criminals also give it up and are thereby less able to victimize me. And I believe it usually does.
If, for example, there were two airports - one with full body scanning, rifling through bags, and checking of databases and one without - I would fly out of the former.
I think you ought to ask the same question to someone whose looks or background, makes that person one who in practice gets to always be randomly selected for special screening. (I am obviously assuming you are not frequently "randomly" selected for such).
Perhaps you are comfortable with such police state airport because you are confident that should there be abuse, it would be very unlikely to be against you?
