Meanwhile, on the other side of the Channel: an enjoyable piece (and how many American politicians could write so well?), but a bad analogy: choosing whether to impose a constraint on oneself and choosing whether to impose a constraint on others are not liberty/security trade-offs in anything close to the same sense.
