Thomas Hobbes believed that Freedom is good, but Security is better.  He made his point by imagining what it would be like to live without government, laws, or society. National security is the ability of a country’s government to protect its citizens, economy, and other institutions. 

In today’s world, national security also encompasses nonmilitary targets such as Cyber security and environmental security.
