Legalizing Privacy: Why and How

Today a perfect storm–our technological lifestyle and highly specialized economy, combined with a legal doctrine that is, at best, misapplied—has produced a modern-day “prohibition” of privacy that has potentially catastrophic consequences. These consequences, as Amy Peikoff will explain in this talk, derive from privacy’s indispensable role in a life of virtue. She will also show how recognizing a “right to privacy” has, ironically resulted in us having less privacy, and present a model for the legal protection of privacy that will allow us to eliminate the “third-party doctrine” used to justify the NSA’s indiscriminate data collection programs.
