Note the following.

Assume 1 in every thousand passengers is a terrorist - surely a wild exaggeration.

This sytem will 'catch' 85 terrorists and 7,992 innocent people from every 100,000 passengers.

This would stop international flights dead.

What Is One-Way Street?

One-Way Street [Einbahnstrasse, 1928] was Walter Benjamin's first effort to break out of the narrow confines of the academy and apply the techniques of literary studies to life as it is currently lived. For Benjamin criticism encompasses the ordinary objects of life, the literary texts of the time, films in current release, and the fleeting concerns of the public sphere. Following Benjamin's lead, this blog is concerned with the political content of the aesthetic and representations of the political in the media. As Benjamin writes in One-Way Street, "He who cannot take sides should keep silent."
