 National security - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
National security refers to the public policy of maintaining the integrity and survival of the nation-state through the use of economic, military and political power and the exercise of diplomacy, in times of peace and war.
The concern is that where the exercise of national security laws and powers is not subject to good governance, the rule of law, and strict checks and balances, there is a risk that "national security" may simply serve as a pretext for suppressing unfavorable political and social views.
The measures adopted to maintain national security in the face of threats to society has in turn led to ongoing dialectic, particularly in liberal democracies, on the appropriate scale and role of authority in matters of civil and human rights.

 HD: National security
For decades after its birth in 1948 the National Health Service clung onto the Home Office assessment that for some reason, patients, staff and visitors alike seem to believe that because hospitals are caring places, they are somehow immune to the effects of local crime and the ills of society.
However by the 1990s, there were signs that the lack of adequate security throughout the Healthcare sector was beginning to be recognised as an issue that needed to be addressed.
Although Nicholls was referring principally to crime, it also rather proved that employing second-rate security officers or buying a cheap CCTV is a far cry from investing the time and resources needed to protect patients and staff, assets and information, while maintaining the reputation of the NHS.

 Grandfather National Security Report - defense spending - by MWHodges

A reading of the Federalist Papers, in 'The Road Traveled', shows that our founding forefathers defined 4 core reasons for forming a federal government, which were: (1) national defense, (2) preservation of peace between states (civil wars, riots), (3) trade between states and nations, and (4) international relations.
During that war America was a creditor nation with the capacity to pay for all its import needs with export earnings (not today's largest debtor nation on earth with exploding trade deficits), and America's manufacturing base was a significant portion of the total economy, unlike today's declining base.
