Con

When attempts to provide security reach the point at which those providing the security intrude upon the privacy of those they are protecting, the possibility for immoral abuse of such power becomes very likely.
STALIN

Pro

A) Safety [1] is more important than privacy.


B) For example, if somebody is holding nukes in his basement, is it more important to search that persons home or say that privacy is necessary and leave the person alone? Clearly, the first option is correct.


C) Privacy can lead to death [2] since if he police don't know whats going on, they can't stop it.


D) When privacy is forsaken, then security is often provided. Lack of security can result in death.


E) Con provided no arguments, therefor I can not provide anymore.
