What privacy protection? As far as I'm concerned, our privacy has been compromised and it will keep getting worse and worse. Cameras are set up in areas that we aren't even aware of. Our internet is monitored, and pretty soon, everything we do will be monitored. We need more privacy in the U.S!
Privacy protections in the United States are weaker than they should be. Especially in the age of social media, where people seem to share information so freely, the protections are quite limited. Once a company gets a hold of your data, there is very little you can do to ensure that it is used in the ways you intended. This is one of the big problems with large, heartless businesses that see people as numbers rather than individuals.
I do not think that it has. With the way that people get others information these days we need all the protection that we can get. Criminals are going to the extreme to get information and money from people so they need to go an extreme to protect themselves from wrong doing.
The right to privacy is inherent in the First Amendment to go along with free speech and freedom to worship. Privacy protections in the United States can never become too extreme because every citizen deserves to have a private life and a private way of doing things. Big Brother can never take over our homes.
