note: this is an update to my previous post. If you have not yet read it, you might want to do so.
So I just did some reading up on civil liberties, and it seems that they are indeed being infringed by the intelligence community in collecting and processing our communications data. You’ll have to forgive my lack of prior knowledge since my childhood education was not all that great. One of our civil liberties is the right to privacy, and that has gone out the window. So what do we do about that? Make a stink?
History has shown that one way is to introduce amendments to the Constitution that protect our liberties: the fourteenth amendment gave us the privileges and immunities clause, due process, and equal protection; is this enough to protect our privacy, or do we need another amendment?
Here’s an idea. The constitution should be updated to fit modern times, to take into consideration digital lifestyles and the inherent issues in these and future advancements.
