The Right To Privacy? Double Talk Violations Exist Everywhere

IV: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

We are told that Facebook and cloud computing and storage are not areas where expectations of privacy are found.  Yet, these sites all have privacy policies and you have to set up accounts to use them.  We are told that we are moving to a paperless society.  If electronic editions are the new paper, then why is it that the fourth amendment is not covering these new areas?  

  Are our leaders double talking us?  We are told that if we are in public, we need to have some form of identification.  According to the fourth amendment we do not.  It does not state that we need to be insecure in our persons, nor papers nor effects.  What constitutes a reasonable search of anyone on the streets?

  If privacy is not to be expected on the Internet, then why is hacking considered illegal?  All hackers are doing is gaining access to information that we are told is not private.  Or is it?  Is it that privacy only exists for governments and corporations?  People however are open to inspection at any time?

  How are we expected to understand what is expected of us unless we are no longer allowed to think and must be told what to think?  Or is this where we presently are and with a future that is much darker and grimmer for the mass population?

  If the government has the right to track you through your cell phone, then why don't you have the right to hack your cell phone for free usage?  

  Isn't a cell phone a personal effect or is it public property if it's a tracking device?  

  Why do websites have privacy policies yet put tracking cookies on your computer without your knowledge?

  Are copyrights and trademarks privacy policies?  

  If you can not enter a house without a search warrant, then how can you search a person without a search warrant on the streets or in their vehicles?

  The questions can forever be put out.  The main point is the double talk we are hit with daily.  One must watch with a careful eye all the double talking going on that violates our rights everyday and fight back against it.
