TSA "Systems so perfect..."

"Why should men love the Church? Why should they love her laws?
She tells them of Life and Death, and of all that they would forget.
She is tender where they would be hard and hard where they like to be soft.
She tells them of Evil and Sin, and other unpleasant facts.
They constantly try to escape from the darkness outside and within
By dreaming of systems so perfect that no one will need to be good."(Choruses from The Rock, VI, T.S. Eliot

"Now, the more comprehensive, formal reviews and recommendations for improvement will be completed in the coming weeks, and I'm committed to working with Congress and our intelligence, law enforcement and homeland security communities to take all necessary steps to protect the country. -President B+,
"...dreaming of systems so perfect, that no one will need to be good".

Some will still choose to be evil. And if, as I believe, we are on our own, then the response of the common man will, in the absence of specific, actionable intelligence, be blunt. When some of their citizens were murdered in Iraq, Tibetans struck back at their Jihad local with safety matches.
