Robert Diebels Posted almost 3 years ago Marc Goodman: A vision of crimes in the future I see your point. However, I do not agree with your point that openness is equal to security. In a sense yes. What I meant was that to acquire full security you need full openness and not the other way around. Security in its very nature is closed. You hide your keys so that others cannot open a door. When the door is always open you will not feel secure, when every door in the world is always open you will not feel secure. Why? We do not trust each other. And this is why Marc had this talk, not because he made "observations", observations are unbiased. He has been trained to not trust others and assume the worst. This is what I didn't write down in my original comment but it is at the core of what I meant. True openness is openness and trust and when you have those you have a sense of true security. Leave out trust and you will not have true openness and you will need closed security.
