Let’s get a few facts on the table about “privacy”:-
First, the word is not mentioned in the Constitution of the United States.
Second, there is no right to privacy like there is a right to vote.
Third, remember that the “rights of man” [‘man’ is 18th-century wording and the constitution needs updating, but I guess that can’t happen until ERA is confirmed - perhaps next century?] come from God and not from government. I am not aware that God had much to say on the subject of privacy - correct me, please - and neither it seems did the founding fathers save for the implications of the fourth amendment.
Fourth, American’s have been arguing about a right to (or of) privacy for over a hundred years, so this is not a new subject.
Fifth, an accurate definition of privacy is legislatively useless because privacy depends on specific circumstances of the alleged infringement or exercise of the right. Two lawyers (one a Supreme Court Judge, Brandeis) defined the right in 1890 as “the right to be left alone” - the 4th Amendment, of course, protects the home from invasion - but if you were to write their right into law what really would it mean - it would be redefined for eternity.
Sixth, if it is not a right and never has been (although the Supreme Court has made some exceptions) and people go online and know that by doing so they are going ‘open kimono’ then they should stay offline. People who want privacy shouldn’t throw themselves under the proverbial privacy bus by joining social media.
Asking for what you never had (either from God or government), and even if you had it you wouldn’t know what to do with it is pointless and a waste of time and resources. That is my definition of nonsense OR ‘it does not make sense’.
So what to do now? We have all these people under the privacy bus calling for help.
We need an amnesty - everyone who wants to opt out given the way things have changed can opt out and their records will be expunged forever (after they have been copied of course!) - and we start afresh. Obviously, there is a bit of a problem with companies and data outside the U.S. as Microsoft and the government argued about in court for the past few years.
