Is Swapping So-Called Security for Freedom Worth That Price?

So the thing that disturbs me most about the present wholesale idesife for security, particularly in ermor*. us government takes on these responsibilities, it also assumes control over them. Thus, the individual, little by little, surrenders certain aspects of his freedom in exchange for what he thinks is security. In my humble opinion, it then 'Becomes but a matter of time before national bankruptcy seta In; last election, which happened while I was in Africa, 1 am forced to Keeping "fietdom."

Our fathers knew that freedom and peace were conditions that had to be cultivated by each generation. Life, for our j'orefathcrs, was full of hazards. They were in dapger of being scalped by the indirns, were often cold and hungry and without ma- erial comforts; but they were free men. Today we are slowly, but •jertainly, surrendering those hard- won freedoms as we move in the 'direction of a welfare state. Soak (he Rich Subsidies and guaranteed "womb- to-tomb" economic aids of every variety have to be paid for by someone. Uncle Sam has no mystical source of revenue. Money for your unemployment securltjTor old-age pension comes out of your pocket, not Uncle Sam's. He has no pockets; and if he did, I am afraid they would be full of holes! When you put a ceiling on a JTian's earnings by taxing his ini- itiative, man tends to give up. And when you soak business and industry, you begin to destroy those 'inancial sources that built our great educational institutions, hospitals, research centers, and libraries. You then begin to scare away private risk capital because the return is just not worth the risk. Then government steps into the breach to subsidize those projects which private capital formerly undertook. Need to Collect More This means that more money has to be collected from your pay check in the form of taxes. Furth- by organized labor's overreaching tself. While we should be grateful for labor's watchful eye, we should at the same time be concerned about strikes and about any if labor's actions which result from its being exempt from the Anti- Trust laws. Oar Founding Father* Our,founding fathers expressed their freedom in terms of responsibility. Each, indeed, was his brother's keeper. Men were close to one another. If there was a fire they had to work together to put it out; if roads were to be built the building became a commun^ ity project; and the laggards were :hastised by their neighbors. One trouble today is that the average citizen ha become so far removed from community respon Ubilitv that he has really lost ton 'i with democracy in action. Too often the average man gives little thought to much of anything be yond the evening TV programs It is almost as if he were unaware that freedom in our U.S.A. is fighting for its very life. Experience Preferred Over Age fo.< Pilots WASHINGTON (ft — Space pilots who will man the Dyna- Solar - the most advanced weapon system under development today — will be chosen because of their experience and not their age. Planes, official publication of the Aircraft Industries Assn., says the pilots selected for the initial flight on the Dyna-Soar a Manned boost-glide vehicle with orbital flight potential — will be approximately five feet ten, and weigh Detween ISO and 155 pounds. Their training will include being whirled in huge "centrifuges and making simulated space flights wUh many of the expected conditions duplicated.
