Most people who want information on you are not your friends or allies. That is why, in the Alaska Constitution, the Right of Privacy was included in Article 1, Section 22:
The right of the people to privacy is recognized and shall not be infringed. The legislature shall implement this section.
Our privacy rights are being violated at a rapidly increasing rate, by federal, and local governments. They often violate your privacy under the guise of security and safety without the consent of the citizenry.
No longer is private information optional. It is becoming mandatory for education (Common Core), healthcare, bureaucracies, etc. Governments and bureaucracies feel that in order for them to manage and do the best job possible, they must have as much information possible. This is across the board… and this is unacceptable.
The first interest should be that of the individual and their personal privacy.
Legislators take an oath of office to protect our Constitutional Rights, but I do not hear them addressing the assault on our right to privacy.
