Gillespie 1 Graham Gillespie UH 155-001 Dr. William Stewart 3 March 2008 Privacy vs. Protection In times of war, American citizens must make sacrifices in order to aid their country in its efforts to defeat its enemy. While soldiers risk their lives while fighting on the front lines, citizens are also affected by war, providing food and clothing for soldiers. In past wartimes, Americans have sacrificed certain personal rights, improving the country’s national security. At the present time, Americans find themselves involved in another war. However, the circumstances of this war are distinct and unfamiliar for America, as the United States attempt to wage war against terrorism. Terrorists are not easily identified or located, nor do they use traditional war tactics. These cowards use surprise attacks on ordinary citizens to intimidate their targets. In response to this new warfare, America’s government has increased its surveillance, both internationally and domestically. These surveillance practices have resulted in a fierce argument over privacy rights. Should the government be allowed tap its citizens’ phone lines and access personal databases in order to increase national security, or does the necessity to protect the privacy rights of Americans outweigh the importance of protection America from future terrorist attacks?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
