What on Earth is AANR Thinking?

FOR DOWNLOAD MORE GALLERY In one of the most bizarre public relations moves in recent memory, AANR has endorsed the government's use of full body scanners at airports.
“Put this issue in its proper perspective,” recommends AANR Executive Director Erich Schuttauf. “A trained security professional in a remote monitoring station takes a few seconds discreetly screening passengers to be sure they’re only bringing what nature gave them aboard. In exchange for safer skies, AANR believes it’s completely worth it. But you don’t have to be a nudist to agree these measures are based on common sense.”
No, these measures are based on FEAR, and have nothing to do with common sense. In addition, this worldwide move to body scanners could be nothing but a huge scam, designed more as a means to appease the traveling public than as a truly effective security measure.

Doesn't Schuttauf realize that endorsing the government's intrusion into personal privacy is contrary to nudist interests? The same power the government is wielding to strip off your clothes can also be used against nude beaches, nude resorts and clubs, and even nudity in the home.

As a nudist, I have no problem with people seeing my naked body, but that's not the issue here. What is happening day-by-day is a gradual erosion of our personal freedoms, willingly sacrificed to a government which declares its primary purpose for existence is to keep us all safe. If they can look under your clothes, they can look inside your home, your computer, your cell phone, and eventually inside your mind.

So for the sake of a public relations stunt, AANR, the self-professed "credible" voice of reason, has thrown personal freedom under the bus, much as it did with San Onofre beach. Equating government control over our bodies with skinny-dipping is not only incredibly stupid, it's patently dangerous. FOR WATCH MORE VIDEO
