There are many different forms of privacy, based on the dictionary definition privacy is the state of being free from intrusion or disturbance in one's private life or affairs. The question debated is should people deserve the right to privacy? Yes, whether from your parents or even the government. Technology has forced people to give up their privacy in many different ways. Even though I believe everyone needs to have their own privacy because it is their right. Others disagree in some cases, by making points about the government privacy invasion or people intervening in their child’s or significant others privacy.
Government is society’s instrument in such affairs if we wish for it to protect us against quacks, frauds, swindlers, maniacs and criminals, we must give them the powers of prosecution, punishment and licensing. Earlier in 2013, Edward J. Snowden, a government contractor, leaked classified documents to the news media that revealed ...view middle of the document...
This program has provided the most important source and using it effectively has prevented attacks and kept people safe. Although this is true other programs like the NSA program is illegal because it is not authorized by Section 215 of the Patriot Act as the government claims, it invades every American’s Fourth Amendment right to privacy, because it forces ordinary Americans to pause every time they pick up the phone to consider whether they want the NSA to know whom they’re calling infringing on the First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and association (Abdo).
Invasion of privacy does not only occur in the government, but also in interaction between people, for example parents. Most parents have a tendency to not really allow their kid to have a private life. This can result in parents searching through their rooms or going through their phones, or maybe even go as far as tracking them. I’m sure that parents do this because they feel like they have the right to do so by reasoning. In reality they do this for their child’s wellbeing because they care. Maybe they will thank them for intervening when they get older.
Even though some people invade on a love one’s privacy because they ‘care’ that’s not always the case. For instance, significant others going through each others phone without them knowing, that’s invasion of privacy is it not? My guess is they do it out of fear, people want to know what is going on but they are too afraid just to ask the person. Either way people oppose me believe that it’s for the persons own good.
Whether it’s the government or a love ones invasion of privacy it does occur. If people do not have anything to hide then why is it a big deal? This has been going on all of this time so why change it now. The NSA program has helped keep citizens safe and that’s all should matter. Love ones intervening on a spouse life or a child life is just to show they care. Invasion of privacy is not something to look at negatively, it’s not harming anyone, and it actually helps other that’s why it should not be a big deal.
