SECURITY
Security is the #1 issue in life.  Survival is a necessity.  Properly protect yourselves to ensure your safety; your survival.

We need space, then health, then oxygenated air, then shelter & warmth, then water and then food.  First for our brain and then for the rest of our body.

Security is proportional to your available funds.  There's no question about that.  The more money you have the safer you are.  From emergency healthcare to daily moisturizing to a strong roof over your head not dependent on your job to travelling in your own car, boat or plane compared with public transport.

Use every security method available to you.  Like, "always get a receipt," as they recommend in the Memento (Ext) movie.

Personal security is of great importance.  Always carry, like a Star Trek (Ext) phaser set on stun, a defense spray.  We recommend the Sabre brand spray containing both OC (pepper) and CS (tear gas) components (plus UV dye for later identification by law enforcement).  These Less-Than-Lethal weapons protect you from attackers whilst also protecting you from hurting them too permanently.  We suggest you check out the Jackass (Ext) demonstration video on the Sabre website showing just how extremely effective these nifty little weapons are (especially compared to expensive and bulky stun guns).  Know that you wouldn't risk using it to protect yourselves from robbery instead only if in imminent physical danger.

Consider the rarity of seeing a policeman whilst out for a walk and how far away they'd be if you needed them to protect you from a mugger or drunk hooligan.

For megopolic security self-defense classes can add invaluable practical skills like Choi Kwang Do (Ext), a Korean American modern martial art, Japanese Aikido or others.  Too great a focus on violence however can detract from the naturally peaceful vibe.

You can't be aggressive.  A peaceful attitude is a necessity.  To be at peace one's vibe must be of peace.  We exist in synchronicity.  Bear no ill will towards Society.  Some say you get back what you give out times three.

Be very, very careful of the consequences of portraying yourselves in public as weak at any time.

Go far out of your way to avoid physical conflict yet if it is unavoidable then you must win.  Kneeing testicles, gauging eyes, scratching, biting, bludgeoning, etc..  By all means necessary.  Nothing is off limits when it comes to your physical security.  Try to inflict pain as your aim is to stop their violence whilst avoiding killing them.  For if you were to kill them then Society could persecute you.  Obviously use Societal law enforcement as soon as you can.  That's what they're there for and you pay for them.

Violent people usually target people who appear vulnerable.  7DS envy & wrath often play a large role.  Whether it be envy of your intelligence, your class, your funds, etc..  Violence is a group behavior.  For instance keeping alert and aware of your environment whilst avoiding much eye contact or acting aloof when out and about is good practice.

Always know how you're better than others.  So you can win in a competitive viewpoint.  Be it superior skills, superior morals, more funds or whatever.  That you're wiser, more knowledgeable about a fav subject and how that's good for you or simply are more content.  Know your strengths.  Be confident in your own abilities and don't feel the need to compete arbitrarily.

The Yi Jing's imagery includes the Veiling of One's Light.  You must be all you can be but this is for yourselves and around Society strong people are resented by others.  Don't be seen as a show off.  The ideal is to mainly not be seen, innoculus, and when you have to be then be seen as normal and standard as possible, without portraying yourselves too stupidly.  This minimizes external energetic interaction, minimizes envy and wrath and lets you pass by them with ease.

Military expenditure, space bombers, missile defense shields, Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD), etc. all help us sleep safe and sound in our beds.

Digital security is very important in this digital age.  If you don't want your personal info stolen then don't give it out to demanding websites.  Don't permit them to store your bank card numbers.  You could use a fake birthday.  Any even half skilled programer won't store your password, they'll instead store the hash (geek speak) of it so that shouldn't be a concern at any major website.  Keep most of your funds in your savings account and only a small amount in your checking account so your card won't have any funds available for thieves to take.  Transfer anything online that you need for the day.

Any nude selfie sent to anyone could end up, without blame, on the internet where it can stay indefinitely for your future employer, passersby, grandkids, etc. to see.  Images even stored only on your computer are theoretically also vulnerable.  However constant use of anti-malware plus firewall software, like Norton Internet Security for both, should protect you fine.  Use encryption to file them safely away and you have no concerns other than forgetting your passphrase.  Use high strength encryption with large, obfuscated keys and even governments can't open them without your help.

Germs, micro-sized lifeforms, are a threat to everyday peaceful survival.  They can infect one and make one ill.  Awareness of cleanliness levels is important to healthy living.  Awareness of the cleanliness level of each area that you encounter; when out & about, each area of your home and especially how clean your hands are.  We recommend wearing gloves when outside your home.  They're great at protecting your hands when carrying bags.  How often do you think a taxi driver cleans the underside of their door handles?  Pocket sized hand sanitizers (which contain mainly alcohol) will disinfect hands before eating a snack.  The near invisible germs will be killed by the alcohol and be dead (harmlessly inert) when you eat them along with your food.

Know that illness comes from without, from external invading.  The solution is distantia and internus.  These ideals can be supplemented with modern medicine in extremely limited doses.  We take care of our own teeth and don't attend dentist surgeries.  Where livelihoods depend on our (and others') ill health we chose not to trust the benefactors be unbiased.  We still need medical treatment maybe once per decade per person then again we've yet to get our own x-ray machine.  We don't trust homeopathy to help.  We do trust acupuncture as a healthcare treatment.

Terrorism spans the globe.  There's no possible justification for the premeditated murder of non-combatants or non-wagers of war.  It's not war, it's murder.  Whether it's Al Qaeda, IRA, Daesh (IS / ISIS) or others.  If terrorists have a cause any legitimacy is drowned out by murders committed in their name.

You can almost never have too much security.  That which you depend on could disappear at any time.  You could lose your job say if your employer collapses, your health if scaffolding collapses, your home if you lose your job, your food supply if a nuclear power plant explosion irradiates the crops, your sunlight if Nuclear Winter befalls, your freedoms if someone hateful frames you.  Removing your dependencies makes you stronger.
