Introduction The actions undertaken of Edward Snowden, the well-known former NSA fugitive who had leak tons of sensitive information from National Security Agency, NSA since 2013 had left a catastrophic impact towards the citizens across the globe as people had been aware that personal privacy conducted on today’s technology communication channels are not truly encrypted, which it leads to the actions where citizens are “losing confidence and trust upon the local and international government especially NSA”(Schneier, 2013) towards monitoring and intercepting the day-to-day communications that invades the citizen’s privacy space. As today’s world is entering a new state of global hyper-surveillance, personal privacy is a truly subjective area
While nationalizing the bill of rights for civil liberties, for example in Barron vs Baltimore (1833) the supreme court made the principle of “dual citizenship” holding that a person was the citizen of both the national and state government (W.W.Norton & Company, Inc). This clearly means that one can be protected by national government as being the citizen, but the state government has the power to do anything because the bill of rights was not applied to the state government. Where as in terms of civil rights, the passage of major civil rights though it was put forward long ago but still to overcome the past discrimination and make stability in terms of greater area of diversity, Court and the government is still working for
This is important as he completely opposed the justification of military necessity by the government and military using concrete evidence of the government itself attempted to destroy files rather than merely evaluating specific cases which could not give a whole picture of the whole problem as it could be argued as outliers；which makes it irrefutable as it is undeniable that the government had misconducted , giving value to the argument that the degree posed by Japanese-American was not equivalent as there are no concrete evidence of Japanese-Americans being disloyal. However the purpose and content of the source is limited for historian studying the Japanese Internment Camps as it mostly circulates around the justification of Military Necessity; thus had mainly used evidence of false accusation of Japanese-Americans being disloyal and how government files had
MARLINE GOMES HIS 320/ ASSIGNMENT 1 Perhaps, Edward Snowden is one of the most debatable figures in recent history, which refers him to be a traitor or a hero. To some, he is a heinous criminal who should be brought to justice or to some he is considered as a national hero. The controversy arises when Snowden leaked a massive number of confidential documents in 2013, with detail governmental investigation programs after quitting his job in National Security Agency (NSA).

People may start to lose trust in the justice system in meting out fair and impartial judgements, resulting in a total disregard of the justice system. In the contexts of crimes carrying the death penalty, jury tampering can have serious ramifications. The irreversible damage done to the accused’s family due to the wrongful convictions cannot be fixed with any sum of money. With Singapore’s strict anti-corruption stance, cases of corrupt judges would hence be rare.

In the last years there have been debates from people about many scandals that have been caused by the action from government from all over the world.

This illegal actions of the NSA, CIA and the GCHQ have been revealed by a guy called Edward Snowden that was a former contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) and also an ex-employee of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The government of the United States accuses him to reveal classified files of this two agencies, and because he was actually working on both. In the side of the CIA and the NSA, I think that they are doing this things for the national security but also that's illegal to do it without the order of an approval of a martial court, thing that they don´t have.

However, Madison states that each branch will naturally try to have more power than the other. To control this, he explains the Separation of Powers and the Checks and Balances. In the United States, the Separation of Power has their own jobs but cannot function without each other. In addition, he mentions that this type of system needs to have Checks and Balances; each branch has a check on the other two and doesn’t allow the branches to trample on each other. This type of system has protected liberty and battled oppressive government.
In today’s era, the Constitution holds most controversial rights that determines our history. The United States Constitution has provided powerful words, such as “We the People” and “all men are created equal” done with careful evaluation by the Founders, including the Bill of Rights that holds 10 amendments under the Constitution regarding a balance between an individual and the government; however, the document defines the American political system and government relations between citizens and its government
