Money talks. It takes millions of dollars each day to run an airline. Almost all of the money comes from you the passenger. Yea, Yea, I know, 9-11.
9-11 is used as a reason for everything that goes on today. 9-11 this, 9-11 that. Put them through this, put them through that. They want to get there quickly, flying is the only way. They will put up with it.
They cross the line again and again. Slowly take away your privacy and rights in exchange for security. You are getting neither.
They are taking away your freedom. And humiliating you at the same time.
Cancel that flight. Take a train. Drive your car. Don't put up with this crap anymore.
Empty planes? Do you think they would notice that maybe they have stepped over the line this time. and last time, and the time before? Just maybe things would change.
Do you want to go over seas? Take a cruise ship. Not a vacation cruise, but a boat to get from one place to another.
I guess we have to go back to a simpler time.
Of course, unless you think it is all a good idea, until it is your turn.
