we ARE animals but we have minds ,we have the ability to choose ,we have a civilization and in that civilization we have norms that people are expected to uphold and everyone knows them … is more security going to make us more better behaved / more civilized ?
No. Quite the opposite actually. Our current ideas about what security is leave us radically insecure. We also are subject to a constant bombardment of sensational images that underplay the "choice" side of things, at the expense of things actually improving. Civilized behaviour is fostered through learning how to live in the absence of "perfect security."
