Privacy. It’s not just a modern issue.
In 1933, Germany’s President Hindenburg signed the Reichstagsbrandverordnung, or Reichstag Fire Decree. Historians regard this decree as one of the key steps leading to the establishment of a one-party Nazi state in Germany. It not only nullified many German civil liberties, but also suppressed publications considered unfriendly to the government. Ferdinand Schlingensiepen’s biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer– one of Hitler’s leading critics– stated quite simply that the decree meant that “the right to privacy of communication by mail or telephone no longer existed.”
Today, the Privacy Coalition is an impressive nonpartisan group of member organizations: consumer, civil liberties, educational, family, library, labor, and technology supporters, who have all take the Privacy Coalitions Privacy Pledge. Privacy Coalition members take individual privacy seriously.
Not everyone seems to agree it’s a problem, however. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was quoted in an article in The Guardian saying, “People have really gotten comfortable not only sharing more information and different kinds, but more openly and with more people… That social norm is just something that has evolved over time.” Of course, Facebook makes millions selling member information, and Zuckerberg’s words could be regarded as self-serving. The fact is that Facebook has been criticized again and again about the highly controversial privacy settings for Facebook members.
Disagreements aside, The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution is clear:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.”
Freedom to read what you want, to hear what you want, and to view what you want has never been more important as more and more entities gather, collect, and monitor online activities as part of their daily business.
That’s why NewsDemon is proud to once again show why they are true privacy advocates.
