Security and Freedom


Freedom as well as security is a requirement that is as extensive as human maturity and is increasingly has many various dimensions and forms. In the past, in according to the assumption that "The increased level of freedom results in the increased possibility of committing crimes and more crimes results in reducing security", relation of security and freedom was contradictory and paradoxical.

In fact, freedom was seemed more negative and minded fear from getting people out of control. But gradually accepting human maturation, the negative aspects of freedom declined and positive aspects such as innovation, creativity, renewal, etc. were emphasized. Hence, in today's world there is no inverse relation between freedom and security and conversely, one of security standards is to enjoy people from freedoms. Maybe it is difficult to accept it for someone who believes that achieving security is possible only in the shadow of social control. But the reality is that today's adult humans, has ability to control himself or herself and enjoy freedom like any other gifts related to human wishes. Freedom advocators believe that if we still see shortcomings in the human actions and behavior, it is not due to having freedom, but because of lack of maturity, and perhaps happened due to undue control on the people. So that post positivists consider the amount of having freedom as criteria for security and mention signifying security. "Semantic field of security in post positivist schools has obtained the special human aspects that are liberty and toleration. According to these theorists, security is achieved when every human person is free to choose their way of life and can obtain everything they get with insight and understanding (Navidnia: 2010, 92)".
