Although from a realist point of view, security is the central preoccupation of states, Waltz observes that states, 'like people, are insecure in proportion to the extent of their freedom. ' One virtue of anarchy is the freedom it affords all from the will of others, for in anarchy 'people or states are free to leave one another alone. 132 With this argument, Waltz seems to be making a normative claim that an anarchic world order is more desirable from a moral point of view than a more integrated one that might impose burdens on states and inhibit the state's privacy understood in terms of national decisional autonomy.

Similarly, Hannah Arendt has argued that 'freedom is exclusively located in the political realm', 37 in the life of the polis, which she contrasts to life in the household, a thoroughly private and nonpolitical realm of inequality, of slavery and mastery, of silence and of the provision of the most basic human needs. The private realm may be necessary, but it is the public realm that is free. In contrast, under an atomistic view, because self-direction is inherent in the individual subject, its freedom lies in being able to think, feel, identify, create and express its own projects without external interference or coercion by others, especially the state.

Indeed, the prescription not to interfere with a state's domestic matters, however that is understood, is aimed directly at other states, the international community, and global civil society, and only indirectly at a state's internal audience. Furthermore, the rhetorical force of employing the terms 'private' and 'internal' or 'domestic' clearly lies not in their descriptive function, but in their normative and prescriptive implications. Acknowledging the difference between normative description and argument allows us to describe something as 'private' or 'public' ('domestic' or 'international'), without committing us automatically to certain normative conclusions.
