Our freedom has been challenged by the monitoring of private citizens telephone conversations. A truly free democracy must not have private citizens monitored for it to operate freely. Suspicious eavesdropping by authorities on any citizen severely hinders a free society. Powers that be is going and always have used any advantage available to them when it comes to control and self-preservation of powers. If suspicious surveillance is allowed than anyone who disagrees with the powers that be, than they shall be discredited quickly and maybe framed and put into prison. We must take seriously what Ed Snowden has sacrificed to let us private citizens know!!!
Did you know that there is suspicious search warrant policy also. Any authority can now get a search warrant only based on their suspicion. This includes if an acquaintance visits your home who is suspected of drug dealing, than any first-day-on-the-job rookie cop can get a search warrant based on his suspicion to invade your home with all of your neighbors watching the chaos. The need for the courts to issue a warrant has been completely trashed.
There are citizens who says that if you are not doing anything unlawful, than monitoring citizens are good for our society. This is a very dangerous view-point because any group can come up with the “good for the nation” argument for anything desired. Our privacy can be totally reasoned away. Plus, “National Security” can be interpreted in ways not imaged by the citizenry, thus circumventing all freedoms of privacy. Citizens of our democracy must have privacy for our society to remain a free and high quality democracy.
