Without privacy, what value is America?

If we are not secure in our private communications with each other, then what value is “security”?

If we cannot hold close to our hearts our most private communications of passion with those we love, what value is “privacy”?

If we cannot be confident in the communications of our plans and visions of enterprises we plan to build with those we trust, what value is “free enterprise”?

If we cannot share our deepest convictions and beliefs with others whose trust we value, what value is “freedom of belief”?

Without protected privacy, what value America?

Clearly, without privacy protected by our 4th Amendment, each cornerstone of the modern, free society is of zero value. With the treason of our government against its citizenry, there is no liberty. When we allow on-going, indiscriminate assaults on our communications and thoughts, there is no free nation.

To be sure, this is not simply an issue of treason on the part of one man, this is an issue of institutionalized treason on the part of our “representative” government. Privacy is a bedrock tenet upon which America was founded and without which it ceases to exist.
