    Words do matter. Protection is necessary when there is a threat, but it is an amorphous action -- well suited to another amorphouse entity. Protecting a person is different, especially since it involves some sort of restraint, as does "security."
    Actions need to be appropriate to the thing acted upon, but not defined by the object.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
