Security and Equal Rights

I heard that in some places in the world where the gap between the poor and the rich is very wide, the rich have to build walls around their houses, hire private guards, and spend a lot of money on security.

When I think of the reason why the United States have to spend more and more on security, I think of that phenomena. The world in which America has become the only super power, has become a place where the gap between the powerless and the powerful is so wide that America’s security has become a bigger and bigger issue.

So the key to America’s security is not hard stuff such as security cameras and personnels, but soft stuff such as foreign policies. Empowering people in other parts of the world more by stopping support of regimes that are not democratic and giving other countries more says in world affairs will help improve American security fundamentally. For example, stop supporting the Saudi Arabia royal family; stop interfering with OPEC countries’ rights to decide oil prices – let the market decide oil prices rather than overturning regimes that would not allow the increase of oil production that will result in lower oil prices.
