Air travel, Privacy and Security

What if it's impossible to have all three? [Anthony McCarthy]

I wonder if anyone has ever thought out the possibility that something like air travel on a large scale is impossible to make completely secure without major sacrifice of privacy and dignity.

What if it's really impossible to have large numbers of people flying, an acceptable level of privacy AND complete security all at the same time? In which case giving it the position it has in our transportation system is seriously wrong headed and a danger to our way of life.
