Transcript of Privacy v. Security

"True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made." -Franklin D. Roosevelt

There has been a non-ending debate about which is more important: privacy or security?

Security is more of a necessity than privacy to keep ourselves and everything we care about safe, and protect our country from terrorism.

Main Idea 1:
Security helps keep you and everything important to you safe.
Why Is Security More Important?
Not having privacy is a violation of the 4th amendment
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.

When police officers arrest someone, they are allowed to search his or her body and immediate surroundings. They may also take any personal belongings for evidence, or it they might endanger the officer's safety.

Counter Claim
"Security, in whatever form it takes, is far more important than privacy, seeing as nothing in this high-tech age is private about any of us anymore" -Carol Philp
If you are willing to post information about yourself on the internet, where it
goes away, you should not be worried about keeping your life private.

Evidence #1- Nothing is
considered private anymore
Privacy v. Security

The word privacy is not found in the constitution, therefore, it should not be considered more of a necessity than security.

"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and
secure the blessings of liberty
to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." -The Preamble of The United States Constitution
The government can't wait for crime to actually happen. They must prevent it before it occurs
If we force our government to sit back and allow crimes to happen when they could prevent them, we would end up losing precious lives, money, and other valuable items.

Evidence #3-Preventing Crimes
With privacy becoming less of a priority, security is now needed more.
According Karen Handley, a psychologist from California,“My national security is more important than whether I made a phone call to somebody. If you have nothing to hide, you probably don’t care.”
If you have nothing to hide from the government, you shouldn't be worried
Evidence #2- Protecting What We Do Put On The Internet Safe
Main Idea 2:
Since 9/11, security is needed to keep our country safe from terrorism
Why Is Security More Important?
Evidence #1-Terrorism in the United States
2,996 people died in 9/11
There were 2,608 total attacks and 226 fatal
attacks in the United States between 1970 and 2011.
29 "mass-casualty events" since the 1970s in
the US
Average terrorist attack
in the US resulted in 3.3
injuries and/or deaths
almost every part of the
US has been hit with
some form of terrorism
since 1970

Evidence #2- American's Thoughts On Terrorism
62% of people in a Washington Post-Pew Research Center poll said that they thought investigating terrorist threats are more important than intruding on personal privacy
Three-quarters said they approved of the government’s tracking phone records of Americans suspected of terrorist activity.
Almost the same number approved of the United States’ government monitoring the Internet activities of people living in foreign countries.
Evidence #3-Ways To Prevent Terrorism
Tighter security controls at airports and boarders help prevent attacks and lost of life
Examples: Body searches, intrusive scanning, and watch lists
Stricter immigration laws results in a reduction in the chances of terrorism

A survey done in 2010 discovered that 32% of people thought that the government’s anti-terrorism policies have gone too far in restricting a citizen's liberties. Later in a 2011 poll, it was found that 54 percent think it is not necessary to give up civil liberties in order to help defend against terrorism.

The anti-terrorism policies are actually helping us protect our civil liberties, and provide security for the nation.
