Anyone out there paying attention?

Screening for Terrorists vs. Screening For Cancer

It’s a short article, but if you are in a rush, here is the last paragraph:

Our government currently tells air travelers, “Submit to our screening despite the dubious effectiveness, bodily invasion, and needless emotional distress” while simultaneously telling patients, “Don’t undergo cancer screening because it might lead to further bodily invasion and emotional distress.” Despite this seeming contradiction, in both cases the government is really saying, “We’ll decide who can do what with your body.” The American founding fathers would never have imagined that the federal government would someday presume to restrict citizens’ medical or travel freedoms in such a fashion.
