Eugee Jarecki in 5 minutes exposes clearly why the greatest threat to national security is the idea that we can create a perfectly secure environment. He draws his thesis of his book from a quote by Dwight Eisenhower:

“We will destroy from within what we are trying to protect from without.”


Eugene Jarecki believes our society is destroying itself by trying to obtain perfect security.

All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

“We will destroy from within what we are trying to protect from without.”
