Freedom vs security

What is the point of safety if it takes away your freedom? You can be perfectly safe suspended in a tank, fed through a tube, guarded in an underground, nuclear-proof bunker, but then what? You won't be truly living at that point, just surviving. You aren't being kept safe for anything. You might as well be a food processor or, better yet, not exist at all and save everyone the trouble.

PS - I think that's what they mean when they say you shouldn't give up freedom for security.
PPS - Freedom is what security is for.
