Privacy vs Safety

Postby Great Britain and Israel » Fri Feb 26, 2021 5:35 am

Privacy Vs Safety

Privacy is very important in our day to day lives, but is it as important as safety? Or should we throw safety out the door for privacy? Well that is what I am going to be talking about.

Well, it depends. If an issue is life threatening then yes, safety comes first. But if that is not the case, then should safety always come first? For example, I have recently put more CCTV cameras around the country to increase the safety of my citizens, but I am receiving backlash for 'spying' and being 'overprotective'. I did this to reduce the risk of crime but are they right? Should privacy come first? I would like to know what you all think about this issue so if you want, reply to this post.

I think safety is more important than privacy. Like McMasterdonia's motto says: "You've got nothing to fear, if you got nothing to hide". Some aspects of privacy should be kept though. The best version is when children learn what is allowed and what not and especially why from a young age. Yes, there will be a lot of backlash at first, but it is going to get better with time. I made the mistake that I gave my country too much freedom in the beginning. Our crime rates are low because of education, but safety levels are too. Don't make the mistake of too much freedom.

TJ says it perfectly. Trading Liberty for Security gets you nothing in the long run, only oppression.
