FBI says that for them „priority is to protect people, especially vulnerable people“.
That’s their view on national security.
On the other side, so many people cannot understand that. They believe every person must sacrifice personal integrity for the good of nation.
Die for nation is for them some kind of proof that their life had a sense.
Everyone who has a different view and choices, like to live for something, not die for something – becomes an enemy.
When I asked them, during negotiation, why they cannot understand that without personal freedom safe borders mean nothing – they told me I’m not Croat enough.
They just cannot understand that some people do not base their life on nationality.

After their long monologue I’ve tried to remind them on actions of Mr Oskar Schindler, who decided to protect people no matter of the fact that he was spying for the Abwehr, the military intelligence service of Nazi Germany, in 1936. (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oskar_Schindler)
He stood by Jews and he always found a way to help them. Because he had a will.
He had a will ’cause he didn’t look into flag of any country – he was looking in values.
