national security

Point: Ask Americans whether they mind some erosion of their civil rights to feel safer, and many would say “no” as long as the invasion of privacy kept them and their families safe. The U.S. president promised on several occasions that the increased national security was necessary and designed solely for our safety.

Counterpoint: Edward Snowden was a high-level CIA operative in its technology division from 2006 to 2009. the documents Snowden covertly downloaded and ultimately leaked to the press included evidence of a U.S. global surveillance program that appears to have extended far beyond matters of national security. This appeared to be consistent with Snowden’s claim that the majority of people placed under surveillance are “ordinary Americans” with no clandestine activities. Documents reviewed by various journalists, including targeted e-mails and text messages, also appear to support Snowden’s claim.

4.4.4 Texting 1. Objective: Assess the social functions of texting

A variation on e-mail is texting, otherwise known as short message service, or SMS. Users can text using a virtual keypad on their smartphones or other electronic devices. Text messaging has evolved significantly over the past two years. initially, a text consisted of only brief text-only messages that were limited to about 140 characters. now, a text message can include photos, video, emojis, even voice recordings. In fact, most smartphone manufacturers even allow voice-to-text capabilities, such as Apple’s Siri, which can, among a host of activities, send texts on behalf of users via natural voice command.

Texting originally was an idea for telephone-like point-to-point communication, not mass communication. But businesses and organizations have come to use newer software to send notices to select groups, like a reminder for a club meeting or an upcoming real deal. Some news services also send breaking news to subscribers. An example is the Weather Channel weather advisory service that allows users to register for free weather alert texts. After several campus massacres, including Virginia Tech in 2007 and Northern Illinois in 2008, many colleges set up systems to alert students, faculty, and staff by texting their cell phones.
