Principled pragmatism at the maghrib of one age, the fajr of another
lock your doors!
Can someone explain to me why there is so much romantization about the era of "when no one locked their doors" - as if this was a good thing? It seems to me that unlocked doors invite crime. Maybe if doors had been locked back in the 50's the barrier to violent crime would have been higher (literally). Should we romanticize the good old days when airport cockpit doors were unlocked?
