Human beings would evolve like the mysterious characters in Jorge Luis Borges’ story, The Immortal. ”5 The Realist could argue that if we were to give equal attention to all the sources of insecurity that human beings confront then life would become so overwhelming, so limitless, that we would simply give up: the weight of insecurity would make us terrified of an existence that is risky, leaving us unable to take a decision. This is a powerful argument. But it rests on the view that the hierarchy of First-Order and Second-Order problems is secure.

One of the questions the film poses is this: at what point does the society obsessed with security and the precautionary principle become an “iron cage,” a surveillance society that limits freedom, allowing the possibility for dangerous accidents? ) The Realist could answer that if the obsession with personal security was taken so far that all the technologies of surveillance and “smart” violence used by the war-machine were deployed inside the state then the freedom, mobility and order that the Realist seeks to defend would be lost: on this perspective, the technologies of the war-machine may be used, but only in exceptional cases (as occurred in October 2002, when military surveillance technology was used to hunt the “Washington sniper”).
