Group # 3 December 5, 2005 CIS 66 Security Versus Privacy: Does Terrorism Change the Debate Since the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York city, government surveillance has become an important question to our society. Is it ethical to allow the government to monitor citizen’s private matters? Does increasing surveillance power and the capabilities of the U.S. government present an ethical dilemma? These are a couple of the questions we need to answer as Americans in this time of uncertainty. It is not ethical to allow the government to monitor U.S. citizens’ credit card statements, e- mails, cell phones or any other personal transactions a person makes. A warrant should be required to access this information. It is also unethical to monitor citizens through surveillance cameras. Privacy is our right as citizens of the United States. This protects our families, thoughts, and freedom of communication. It will also prevent our government and business interest from collecting unnecessary information and from misusing this information. The technology that is used in collecting the information and performing the surveillance on U.S. citizens is not flawless. Mistakes are made in data analysis, collection of data, and the interpretation of the data.
