At the same time I feel like security is largely dependent on people believing it's way more secure and inescapable than it is. Look at how much money has been put into a simple task like the TSA, yet people sneak shit onto planes all the time without any problems, people who aren't even particularly motivated. Weapons and drugs get onto planes constantly despite the lengths they go to to prevent it. All the corporations I've worked for have such terrible security.

And then the other factor is that sabotage might lead to better security, but it's a huge drain on their resources as mentioned in some of the essay's examples.
