Salah sawijining pacelathon sing terus dakdeleng munggah ing ndhuwur Kontroversi spontan NSA yaiku perusahaan sing wis nglumpukake data babagan Amerika iki kanggo upaya pemasaran.
Kanggo sampeyan sing ana ing njaba Amerika Serikat, Konstitusi kasebut jelas banget karo Amandemen kaping papat kanggo RUU Hak minangka warga negara.
Amandemen kaping papat kanggo RUU Hak
Hak-hak masarakat supaya aman ing awake dhewe-dhewe, omah, kertas, lan efek, tumrap telusuran lan kejang sing ora wajar, ora dilanggar, lan ora ana waran sing bakal diterbitake, nanging amarga ana kemungkinan, didhukung sumpah utawa negesake, lan utamane nggambarake papan sing bakal digoleki, lan wong utawa barang sing arep dicekel.
Whether or not you believe that the collection of meta data should or shouldn't be covered under the 4th Amendment isn't going to be argued here. I have my own beliefs but I'm not a Constitutional attorney (and even they don't agree).
I know I'm a marketer so my opinion is skewed, but I love that companies are paying attention to me. I want to share information with them and I want them to use it to improve my customer experience. If that means product recommendations or targeted messaging, please do! I love product recommendations!
Now, let's equate the goal of marketers to the target telik pamrentah. The government's pursuit of meta data is to ngenali pola sing nyebabake investigasi warga sing luwih jero adhedhasar tumindake. Penyelidikan kasebut bisa nyebabake dakwaan lan pungkasane, dipenjara. Dadi, nalika para pemasar pengin adol luwih akeh nganggo data… pamrentah ngupayakake golek lan ngunjara wong kanggo nglindhungi wong Amerika.
That's not even close to the same so please stop comparing the two.
I don't mean to be flippant, but please look at the history of our incarcerated in this country. According to data, 95% bebendhu ukum minangka asil tawaran sing ora ana bukti resmi, lan sing paling ora nate ngganggu banding.
So let's take the longshot here. I travel a lot and I discuss politics online. How long would it take to overlay my conversations questioning the government with actual anti-government or terrorist activity geographically throughout the United States? This week, I'm heading to Chicago. Perhaps there's a sleeper cell in Chicago within a few miles of my hotel that the government is collecting data on. How many overlaps will it take to procure enough circumstantial evidence to put a case together on me? Combine this with the guns I own and how does that appear?
Now line it all up – from my government criticism, my military service, my travel to large cities throughout the world, my ownership of guns – and add to it the full force of federal prosecutors with unlimited budgets. I don't have the resources to hire high-powered attorneys to defend myself. Is that really a longshot? I don't think so. Again, our history is absolutely full of overzealous prosecutors who have gone after conviction after conviction to improve their political pursuits.
Please don't compare the marketing of companies to the goals of spying on citizens for national security. They're completely different.
Manungsa waé NSA: Just a note that I'm not anti-government and would never take up arms outside of defending myself. I'm very much supportive of local government and law enforcement. I'm often an opponent of federalization, though, for its inefficiency, overreach and corruption.
