FOURTH AMENDMENT U.S. Constitution -
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.'
Why should your non-public business become part of a universal and perpetual record on the internet? If one does not want to borrow money, what right does someone have to keep, maintain and sell a dossier of your financial affairs? Why should someone be able to type in your address and get a satellite photo of your entire property? That used to be call a spy photo.
There is no right of privacy, but there should be, and a person should be able to opt out of an intrusive system that is only possible with the technology created in one generation. It is past time to to stop the continued erosion of a basic human need. We admonish a child not to stare so why should our private business be available to worldwide scrutiny?
We must allow a person to keep private affairs private. It is not a question of having something to hide. A person that wants privacy should not have the burden of giving their reasons for privacy. After all, that is private too.
