Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: The TSA’s Misapplication of the Precautionary Principle

In the wake of tragedy of 9-11, the American people feared terrorists would take away their freedom. The greatest threat to freedom was the voluntary surrender of freedom for the sake of government-provided “protection”. This “precautionary principle” has been used by Big Brother to say “governments should implement regulatory measures to prevent or restrict actions that raise even conjectural threats of harm to human[s].” In essence, this principle claims overprotection causes little to no harm.

Nothing to Hide, Something to Fear

Washington doesn’t have the right answers because they ask the wrong questions. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) last month demonstrated a lack of understanding of America’s constitutionally protected rights when he nonchalantly explained he is “glad” that the government was spying upon Americans. Graham explained that if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear. However, the American people have a lot to fear from politicians ask who defend tyranny above the right of the people.

Paul Krugman Understands the NSA, Why Don't You?

The scope of NSA spying is broader than anyone would have ever believed and the limits on the agency are more secretive and insubstantial than anyone could have ever feared.

How the Surveillance State Threatens the ‘Law-Abiding’ Citizen

The startling realization that the NSA has been spying on American citizens is often met with the excuse “I have nothing to hide, why should I worry?” and is subsequently ignored.  There are many strong arguments as to why you should care: privacy should be valued for its own sake, large bureaucratic apparatuses have proven to be untrustworthy, and sweeping domestic surveillance invites ‘Big Brother’ into our society. The strongest argument though, is to point out that now or in the future you may indeed have something to hide and not even know it.

Get Your Hands Out of My Purse, TSA

I suppose I should preface this by saying that I travel quite regularly. Spending time in airports, dealing with security and all the annoyances that come with modern day air travel are not Johnny-come-to-town occurances for this bright-eyed, redheaded gal. Sadly, I'm used to random bag searches at the TSA screening posts and the occasional blue-gloved molestation all in the name of "safety".

NSA Domestic Spying: A History of Abuse

Whistleblower Edward Snowden brought warrantless wiretapping to the forefront of national conversation by exposing the National Security Agency surveillance of the American people. While  many  Americans  are outraged at the NSA’s unconstitutional actions, few realize the extensive history of NSA’s spying policies. Since President Truman established the NSA in 1952, the agency has grown in both power and technological capabilities, enabling them to spy upon Americans without consent or probable cause.
