One of the latest developments in the escalating debate over privacy in the Internet age.
I realised as I was reading this that it is not only the rights or liberties of different individuals that can be in conflict. For instance, my right to carry a gun around may undermine your right to safety.
Two rights or liberties belonging to the same person can also be at odds – in this case, a person’s right to security (for instance, protection from terrorism) can clash with his own right to privacy. If his right to privacy is absolute, the government will not be able to conduct online surveillance and protect him from terrorists.
