    Security vs. privacy? Reinterpreting the Fourth Amendment.

    A Yale legal scholar suggests a radical reinterpretation of the Fourth Amendment, in which "security" replaces "privacy" as the guiding principle.

    This begs the notion of anonymity's role where security can be guaranteed as per the 4th amendment, and privacy simultaneously assured - i.e. the real issue is anonymity, especially with NSA's warrentless wiretapping and the Federal Government's data mining of all communications in and out of the USA.
