Security and Relations


Human is a social being, namely relations and communication is one of the most important bases of his existence. Live in solitude and loneliness is suffering and this is why the solitary confinement is a heavy punishment. Two main forms of communication are direct (face to face) and indirect and they occurred via various means of communication.
If dealings shift from direct interaction to indirect, sensitiveness and dimensions of the communication would reduced and therefore the amount of the security demands would diminish. In fact, people to communicate with one another require level of security that is a function of the form of social interaction. As for having a direct relationship at home, more security is required than a telephone connection. "Level of safety could both leave people free to communicate with others and cause acceptance of a variety of social diversity and vice versa could bring people in anxiety and fear... hence form of communication is affected from security and increasing enjoyment of security would result in a shift from close relations to open relations (Navidnia: 2006, 149)." So, those who believe that providing security requires limits on communication, reducing multilateral and diverse interaction, encouraging convergent relations, accepting dealings with certain criteria, avoiding disparate relationships, avoid unfamiliar relations etc., consider the security as a barrier they could stop the risks behind it; while security is possibility of flights and moving to all areas that provide growth and flourish of human while protecting him or her.
Thus, "the realization of security, makes avoiding assignment of risk and threat to the identities and accepting different identity groups more easier, which naturally would lead to stability and survival of many collective identities (Navidnia: 2006, 154)." So in this perspective, rather than worries and concerns of others and fear in the dealings with the risks in relations, individuals would perpend to new achievement and happiness of interactions.
