Firstly airports; as a frequent air traveller I have to say UK airports are pretty good, and to be honest I actually like the idea of this scanner no longer will there be inane having to take shoes and belts off, but my somewhat cynical approach to airport security would be less with these machines, as I think they actually work opposed the the current systems which leave me less than convinced.

However, with regards Freedom of Speech, though I haven't watched the video I do entirely disagree with the erosion of Freedom of Speech, as I am a massive proponent of John Stuart Mills essay "On Liberty", and I think he along with Voltaire were very much correct in their assessment of why allowing people to speak freely is of profound importance.
