Do you consider privacy to be a privilege or right? To start off privacy is 100% a privilege and it is only given when earned. Everyone has a right to privacy but whether or not its given is up to the higher authority. When your younger you get mad at your parents for snooping around your room, reading your diaries, and invading your so called, "privacy." When older and a person is given a right, it is the governments decision or the law; for example, When getting arrested the higher authority usually says, "You have the RIGHT to remain silent anything you say and will be used against you." When a person is given the PRIVILEGE to do something it goes back to the fourth amendment which is basically, "Keeping the government from going through your belongings and giving them a reason to prosecute you." My mom always told me the less privacy you give to someone the more they have to hide from you because if you give them the privacy they deserve they won't rebel and they will give more respect to the higher authority.

I'm sorry about this, but the time limits are refraining me from posting a full argument. I shall continue next round. Sorry about the inconveniences.

Sorry but I have to forfeit this. Poor timing made it so that I no longer have any time to do this debate.

Forgive me :(
