Is an airport body scanner taking away a liberty?
In a few of the questions raised regarding body scanners at airports there seems to be a wide mix of reasons why people feel they do, or do not want to use them.
One quote that comes up a lot is:-
The body scanner does not restrict your travel, does not restrict your ability to earn a wage, does not allow internment, does not change the democratic election process, does not give police 'matial powers' amongst others. I do not understand what liberty it is taking away.
I guess the final part of this question is related to the ownership of the airlines. They are companies, and like all companies, you accept their terms and conditions to use their services. So is it wrong just to ensure the safety of yourself and potentially thousands of others and of course the safety of the crew, after all, they are company employees and the company has a duty of care to protect it's employees. The same goes for TSA, they have also a duty of care to protect lives too.
