  • Order and security are important values for everyone. Americans, however, also value freedom and liberty.
  • Is it possible to maximize both of these goals at the same time?
  • If and when that isn't possible, which goal should take priority?

It is generally not  possible to maximize order and security as well as freedom and liberty.  To understand this with a better perspective, let us consider the efforts our country, US, is putting in to provide order and security for its citizens.  It is protecting us from the threat of terrorist organizations which are bent upon to do as much as possible damage to this country and its citizens by using violence.  So to fight against these organizations, it is intercepting  phone messages and email messages of people to gain useful and intelligent  information.  These approaches may be working against our freedom and liberty rights.  This example shows that citizens have to give up some of their of their rights to  freedom and liberty to receive  the order and security we deserve.

So when it is not possible to achieve both goals, the order and security goal takes priority.
