I saw ensler speak a few years ago at my university and she's been my hero ever since. This is a great video! She really takes down Bush!

Ensler's thesis that the notion of security is and always has been an illusion is interesting and makes sense. The more we are obsessed with security the more restricted we are in our lives. Its all part of Bush's fear tactic. The truth is Bush is not protecting the country in any way. Past programs seen on Fora, have demonstrated how, despite the 9/11 commission recommendation implementations, the country's safety is no more secure than before. Since 9/11, we have become aware of the insecurity that we all inhabit, everytime we step on a plane, a subway, go across a bridge we think of 9/11 and its possibilities. The truth is we were never safe, other countries have dealt with terrorism for decades if not more, the phenomenon is new to us. We were always an open target we just assumed we were invincible. It is good to be aware of one's surroundings, but living in a constant state of fear and paranoia is not a healthy quality of life.
