In the preamble of the  U.S. Consitution, the concept of security is invoked only once:

“To secure the blessings of Liberty to Ourselves and our Posterity.”

Posterity is easy enough to define: it is a word that encompasses all future generations. Blessings, as a word, is not so easy to define. But all peace-living people, if asked, would likely agree that having clean water to drink is a Blessing. That the healthy, fertile soil that can grow food to nourish all our families is a Blessing. That the air we can breathe without fear of sickness and disease is a Blessing.

These are the Blessings that must be secured. Our security as a People cannot be entrusted to an inequitable power establishment that places the short-term gains of profit above the long-term needs of healthy communities and reliable shared resources.
