* Microsoft Supports Security Enablement
A September 15, 2006 advertising supplement to CIO magazine demonstrates 
that Microsoft views security enablement as valid

* FUD Theater
So-far-to-date non-existent Toorcon Firefox Exploits; Vendors focusing 
only on vulnerabilities and exploits to an abnormal extent = FUD Theater.

The perspective of focusing on, voicing and exploiting fear, uncertainty 
and doubt for an agenda other than the truth is what what one might call 
"FUD Theater".

This is in contrast to "security theater" which aims at describing when 
non-optimal security methods are established instead of one’s that would 
be truly effective.

* Virtual Trust Help to Flatten the World...
Authentication used as an example of future enablement. Virtual Trust 
abound in the book, "The World is Flat"
