Assuming as observational perspective of systems theory processing Niklas Luhmann and Raffaele De Giorgi, it interprets the failure of security policies through the theory of modern society as risk society and not as a security society. The alternative is to risk the danger and not security. Security as opposed to risk indicates only an empty place that can not be certainly filled empirically. The safety tematizzala particularly erosion current issue of functional differentiation: in this way, for example, the policy and right boundaries become more and more undefined.
