Are we giving up too much privacy for security? Has there really been an improvement in security since government started monitoring our every move?

  • Yes! What Others Do Is Not Your Business!

    Wake up...Life sucks and there's no such thing as complete security. Life will hand you your *** repeatedly, and all you can do is say "may I have another please?" This is why someone found wisdom in 'the cost of freedom is vigilance and blood'. You want freedom? Then it naturally opens you up to vulnerabilities. You want to be safe and secure? Well, I can lock you up in a nice, secure cell and promise to feed you, shelter you, etc. It'll be great, right? No one can get to you, right? The irony is we watch TV and films ALL THE TIME depicting where a population is coaxed into giving up freedom to be "safe and secure" from some random [planned?] or short pattern of horrible event(s). Yet we cannot see it in the real world??? It's the gov't screaming 'terrorism' [do you like getting felt up by TSA at the airport?], it's the lawyers screaming sue everyone, it's the activists screaming 'racism, inequality, [ironically] intolerance', it's the parents using the 'Maude Flanders' tactic: "Oh won't someone think of the children?!"... All of it equates to chipping away at freedom, right or wrong. Open your eyes...The person typically screaming for MORE 'security and safety'...Good intent or not, knowingly or not...Is the enemy. Watch them like a hawk. Best movie quote: "So this is how liberty dies–with thunderous applause." Guess who the moron is applauding...It's likely you.

    This days while Muslims spread terror all around the world we must do everything to stop them . Its a temporary situation until we beat them. If we beat them. Life are more valuable then privacy. When fighting evil you must be strong and put the politically correct a side

  • Yes there is almost no such thing as privacy anymore.

    I don't mind the threat of possibly dying as much as I mind someone snooping through my shit as if it was theirs and not mine. That might seem a little silly to some people, but the ramifications for having no privacy outweigh a potential possibility (a very unlikely one). With that said, I don't mind one damn bit who they spy on outside of this country in the name of national security.

  • We are giving up too much privacy

    Last time I checked, every citizen had the fundamental right to their privacy but with new emerging technologies and unfortunately increased terrorism and security threats, our every move is being monitored. Our google searches are sent to an online database somewhere, cookies are being collected without our consent and our data and personal information is being sold for profit. Privacy is constantly being redefined to align with new technologies and government regulation. Do we really feel safer knowing that someone somewhere is watching? It's almost like George Orwel's 1984 all over again. The big brother is always watching...
