(NaturalNews) The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC), a public interest research center focused on civil liberties, recently held a conference to discuss U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) airport security protocols. Jim Babb, founder of WeWontFly.com, spoke at the event, where he suggested that the TSA be disbanded and passengers be given the freedom to choose the level of security they feel comfortable with.

Babb emphasized at the conference that full-body backscatter radiation scanners and invasive, genitalia-groping pat downs have done nothing to improve security and everything to help condition the populace to accept degrading and humiliating treatment by what is now being called the "badge class", or those that hold authoritarian, police-state positions over the America populace. According to Babb, if "security" is decentralized and given back to the people where it belongs constitutionally, Americans would be both free and safe.

"We need flexible, decentralized, innovative security that only a competitive marketplace can provide," Babb explained to listeners. "As passengers, we need the freedom to select the level of security that we are comfortable with. Those who want a full prostate exam can have it. Those that prefer more modest techniques can have that, too. Let 'grope-and-scope' airline compete with 'free-and-dignified' airline. It's better for security, better for privacy, and avoids the constitutional issues."

A father himself, Babb cited numerous cases of sexual assault and degrading forms of fondling that continue to take place against innocent travelers, including young children, in the name of security. He also explained that the companies that make airport scanning machines -- including Rapiscan, which hired former U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) secretary Michael Chertoff to promote scanner use (http://www.naturalnews.com/030505_naked_body...) -- are behind the push to increase airport security protocols, for reasons obviously other than to actually improve safety.
