But what if you had no choice. What if you are unknowingly being invaded of your privacy. What we all have in common is the feeling we get when people like the government abuses our rights and invade our privacy. People like George Orwell explain how the government uses tactics to invade people 's privacy without them knowing at times. George Orwell’s big hit “Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984)” has a very important line that impacts the book and
Now don’t get me wrong things like the patriot act are necessary for the safety of our nations but I believe the NSA has been taking things much too far. The NSA has been purposely intruding SMS, texts, calls, and almost anything that is considered over the web interaction. Not only is this causing problems for people right here at home but is also making enemies overseas. A great example of this is the NSA spying scandal in Germany. On July 10th 2014 as told by several news site including my citing of NBC news  that Germany demanded that the top U.S. intelligence official leave immediately over spying allegations.
The society is built on power which exist in the government; on the other hand, some governments use this power through force which is considered to be unreasonable (Hurst, 2016). Sociologists define deviance as behaviour that violates the standards of conduct or expectations
In fact, China has the world’s most complex censorship system, which is implemented due to political, moral and commercial reasons. Essentially, the most prevalent form of censorship in China is imposed in regard to political motivations. China controls the access to the Internet on domestic and international levels. It censors the Internet through the ‘Golden Shield’, which is a complex and highly developed project operated by the Ministry of Public Security. It limits and blocks the access to foreign websites such as YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Google.
In repressive societies there is an extensive use of state control throughout daily life, for example in the prohibiting and banning of free speech and political opposition, and following severe human rights breaches and abuses. Many people consider the repressive capability of an authoritarian regime as the most serious factor as to why these regimes remains durable. They are able to some what manipulate and establish their rule as almost a norm in society. It is obvious that repression is very much present in china in a number of different ways for example in relation to internet censorship. Internet censorship being the great firewall of china a surveillance project controlled and operated by the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) division of the Chinese government.

Destroy every piece of technology you own and stand up against those attempting to dictate our lives! The U.S. government is invading the privacy of its’ citizens through the use of mobile devices such as phones and laptops. This use of privacy invasion is similar to the technology used in George Orwell’s novel 1984. What makes today relate to 1984 is how the government tracks us through location, voice, and messaging. George Orwell’s 1984 has a totalitarian government that can track its’ citizens through location with the use of telescreens.
He focuses on the aspects on why Snowden’s actions are against the laws of the US government and the contract he has signed at his workplace NSA: “Any government employee or contractor is warned repeatedly that the unauthorized disclosure of classified information is a crime.” By noting this he accuses Snowden of breaking the law he has signed as a government employee. He has not only broken the law, but also put the security of the government at risk: “As a result, all of Snowden’s secrets may wind up in the hands of the Chinese government” This quote indicates, that the leaked information is critical and may have bad consequences if it ends in the wrong hands. By saying “Snowden’s secrets” indicates that there 's more the public does not know about. To empathize that he made the wrong decision he explains what Snowden could have done about the situation bothering him: “they can try to protest within the institutions where they work.” Tobbin points out that Snowden 's reaction was wrong, and that there were other ways he could have
“In 1947, President Truman had ordered background checks of every civilian in service to the government. When Alger Hiss, a high-ranking State Department official was convicted on espionage charges, fear of communists intensified”(McCarthyism). This fear is what drove American to condone stripping jobs, opportunities, and constitutional rights of thousands of citizens. In the grip of paranoia, an entire nation was capable of turning on
The FBI obtained a blood sample from the President and was able to match his DNA with the stain on the dress. Evidence of a sexual encounter was now undeniable. (Famous Trial). This was one of the few main evidence that Starr and the FBI found that the president is guilty for what he have done and he had lied to all the American

Every American is being monitored even without reasonable cause for the government to be monitoring them. The intentions of both acts were to monitor Americans who are supporting the terrorist and help fight the terrorist crimes within our country. The problem is that the government is over stepping that line and is monitoring everyone’s phone data. Phone data is not a reasonable source to gain suspicion of someone who a terrorist or helping a terrorist. Washington Post has posted on May 24, 2015 that the FBI confirms that no major terrorism cases were caught form the Patriot phone data collection (Krieger, 2015) The American Civil Liberties Union filed a law suit against the government in 2013.
They mention the agency’s new wiretapping program and the constant suspicion that the agency is hiding something. The “FBI Encyclopedia” and “NSA wiretapping program” explains the suspicion on the NSA since World War II to the present day twenty- first century, while “Rep. Ellison Statement on Allegations of NSA Spying on Muslim-Americans” talks about how the NSA spies on Muslim-Americans when there was no wrong doing. This article uses the position of other nations/ races and how they are affected through these programs. However, all three articles come to a conclusion to make points about the National Security Agency being sneaky with something and their actions going beyond their
What constitutes an unreasonable search and seizure in terms of preventing terrorism? We have studied in the past readings about misuse of intelligence gathering agencies on US citizens. Operation CHAOS was directed at anti-war protesters. This is not the agenda today of domestic security; the aim is to prevent terrorism. Lawfully speaking, the FISA court which we have read about provides a legal framework to conduct intelligence gathering on US persons.
