The US Constitution is a document deeply mistrustful of government and meant to protect “We, the People” from it. People have a right to be wrong, say stupid things (especially in private), vote for idiots, and harm themselves.
If you think that only government, corporations, and powerful people are entitled to privacy then you will sleep well at night knowing that every action, conversation, and inner thought and feeling will be available via your smartphone and Fitbit
The best way to keep people quiet is to make them feel complicit in the wrongdoing.
