Risk aversion

Americans have become terrified of all risk, just look at any airport or watch kids riding bikes or skating with pads and helmets and being tracked via GPS...

We've become a nation of cowards whimpering for big mommy government to protect us from the nasty scary real world, giving up every vestige of freedom in exchange for the mere illusion of safety.

We need to risk failure or even injury, we should enjoy a little bit of danger, otherwise life is just too pathetic to bother with. IMO.
