After the attacks in Paris, 84 % of asked French were fine to lose some personal freedom to gain more security (Le Point). In ‘Liberte’ a crying goddess of Liberty (inspired after the work of Eugene Delacroix) is holding up a paint brush with which she wrote LIBERTE (freedom) on a wall. Maybe she is afraid that the freedom the western world holds so dearly will be lost to fear. That people will opt against freedom, in order to get a (false) sense of security.
