ethics of privacy
    #2822019 - 06/23/04 08:43 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

are invasions of privacy, such as listening in on phone calls or peeping through windows, acts of force?

other invasions of privacy, such as nonconsensual searches of vehicles or homes, are clearly forceful actions, but when are they, and when are they not, iniation of force?

Different people define 'act's of force' in different ways.

My short answer to the "are invasions of privacy, such as listening" question is: YES

re: other invasions of privacy... When they are (again a short answer):

When blatant evidence that a 'law' is being violated because someone displays prohibited items so that a jurisdictional authority may see or by other means understand that they are in your posession (or in reality, simply your proximity).

re: other invasions of privacy... When not (s/l)
case law... hummm, many thoughts about that part... Too many thoughts.. my current mindset is better enjoyed outside on this beautiful summer evening... sorry...

In a word, yes. It used to be that it took quite an effort to get a court order to tap telephone lines, etc, but nowadays, it's all too easy, thanks to the so-called "Patriot Act". :frown:
