Questions for the paper:
1. What is the constitutional foundation for the right or privacy? (refer to the Civil Liberties chapter in Module 4)
2. Do you believe that there is a right to privacy? Do you agree with the what the Supreme Court has said about privacy?
3. Edward Snowden is a controversial figure. Some believe he is a heroic whistleblower who has exposed how the government has infringed on people’s rights. Others believe he is a traitor that has hurt the government’s ability to protect its citizens. Which of these two sides do you think is more accurate? In answering this, discuss how much liberty we as a society should be willing to give up in order to feel better protected from international threats?
