Privacy Is A Right

Privacy Is A Right, One That People Need To Fight For Just As Hard As Speech Or Personal Security. Privacy X Project Believes All People 
Have A Right To Privacy And Personal Security. Don’t Let Governments And Big Tech Steal Your Rights In The Name Of Convenience, User Experience, Or ” Your Safety”. You need to take back your data from big tech and protect your freedom and the rights that come with that freedom. With big tech and big brother becoming best friends the average citizen is singled out and targeted as easy prey. Together we stand taller and stronger than any government body or company ever will. Together we win, divided we fall. 

The common response is: I have nothing to hide so why should I care? You are correct, why should you care.

It’s not about hiding, it’s about not giving government and big tech control of your life. When big tech and big brother became best friends they knew they could pick us off one by one as easy prey. Together we will win, divided we fail. Don’t give up your rights in the name of security or convenience. Never give out your data in the name of marketing or user experience unless you want this to be used against you later in the form of control. Control of your life and everything you do. 

Privacy Laws In The United States Are In A Gray Area On A Case By Case Basis.

The Constitution Of The United States and The Bill Of Rights Does not explicitly include a right to privacy.

The Supreme Court In Griswold VS Connecticut. 381 U.S. 479 (1965) found in that the Constitution grants a right to privacy against governmental intrusion via penumbras located in the founding documents text.

The 1890 Warren and Brandeis Law Review article “The Right To Privacy” is often cited as the first implicit finding of a U.S. right to privacy.

Edward Snowden Disclosed Mass Surveillance in the United States And Is Currently Living Overseas To Avoid Prison Without A Fair Trial. 

Governmental organizations such as the NSA, CIA, and GCHQ amongst others are authorized to conduct mass surveillance throughout nations worldwide. Programs such as PRISM, MYSTIC, and other operations conducted by NATO-member states are capable of collecting a vast quantity of metadata, internet history, and even actual recordings of phone calls from various countries.

Domestic law enforcement at the federal level is conducted by the FBI, in order to “enforce” these agencies have never been authorized to collect US data.

“The Privacy Act of 1974 prevents unauthorized disclosure of personal information held by the federal government. A person has the right to review their own personal information, ask for corrections and be informed of any disclosures. “

“The Financial Monetization Act of 1999 requires financial institutions to provide customers with a privacy policy that explains what kind of information is being collected and how it is being used. Financial institutions are also required to have safeguards that protect the information they collect from customers.”

“The Fair Credit Reporting Act protects personal financial information collected by credit reporting agencies. The act puts limits on who can access such information and requires agencies to have simple processes by which consumers can get their information, review it and make corrections.”

The right to privacy often means the right to personal autonomy, or the right to choose whether or not to engage in certain acts or have certain experiences. Several amendments to the U.S. Constitution have been used in varying degrees of success in determining a right to personal autonomy:

  • The First Amendment protects the privacy of beliefs
  • The Third Amendment protects the privacy of the home against the use of it for housing soldiers
  • The Fourth Amendment protects privacy against unreasonable searches
  • The Fifth Amendment protects against self-incrimination, which in turn protects the privacy of personal information
  • The Ninth Amendment says that the “enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage other rights retained by the people.” This has been interpreted as justification for broadly reading the Bill of Rights to protect privacy in ways not specifically provided in the first eight amendments.

“In March 2013, James Clapper, the National Intelligence Director at the time, testified under oath that the NSA does not “wittingly” collect data on Americans. Clapper later retracted this statement.”

The Government’s own PCLOB reviewed the confidential security documents, and found in 2014 that the program did not have “a single instance involving a threat to the United States in which the program made a concrete difference” in counterterrorism or the disruption of a terrorist attack.

The right to privacy is included in various legal traditions to restrain governments and private actions that threaten the privacy of individuals. Over 150 national constitutions mention the right to privacy in the document text according to Wikipedia. 

In the 1948 Universal Declaration OF Human Rights Article 12, the United Nations states: 

  • No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks
What the law should say: Simply Put………
