I heard a (now ex) friend of mine say once, “I don’t need privacy – I have nothing to hide.” Really? I thought… That’s not my experience – I need privacy to contemplate, meditate, pray, worship, create. I don’t want my bathroom or my bedroom to have glass walls. In addition, my right to privacy gives me the right to grow spiritually at my own pace. I don’t have to keep up with anyone else’s standards and my Right to Privacy allows me to make my own mistakes, from which I learn.
You can go further and create sigils which state “I am invisible to surveillance” or “I am protected from Electromagnetic Frequencies.” And just to reiterate – I have lost so many “friends” due to this skamdemic – friends I have known from between 17-30 years, as well as my family. It’s ok though because I don’t have to know people who don’t desire freedom as much as I do. I simply cannot be in touch with people who want to be slaves.
Observe in Nature, how Nature’s creatures express their unalienable right to privacy … I have come upon animals and birds hiding to enact acts of privacy, which proves to me that privacy is an unalienable right.
WHAT IS THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY?
The right to privacy is not mentioned in the Constitution. However the Bill of Rights, reflects the concern of James Madison and other framers for protecting specific aspects of privacy, such as the privacy of beliefs (1st Amendment), privacy of the home against demands that it be used to house soldiers (3rd Amendment), privacy of the person and possessions as against unreasonable searches (4th Amendment), and the 5th Amendment’s privilege against self-incrimination, which provides protection for the privacy of personal information.
Right to privacy is most often cited in the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment, which states:
No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
THE RIGHT TO BE LET ALONE
Louis Brandeis and Samuel Warren defined protection of the private realm as the foundation of individual freedom in the modern age. Louis Brandeis having co authored “The Right to Privacy,” Brandeis remained a stalwart champion of the right to privacy during his tenure as a member of the Supreme Court from 1916 to 1939. His famous dissent was in Olmstead v. United States (1928), “the right to be let alone—the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by civilized men.”
It is essential that we know and understand our right to privacy and the right to be let alone. How can one defend these rights if we don’t even know what they are?
