Society has an obligation to protect itself. To the extent protection of privacy works toward that end, then privacy will be protected.

Some places, a "right" to privacy seems to be built into governing documents. Other places, it is decidedly not.

As population increases, less privacy is possible than in former times. As we succumb to fear, we are often willing to give up privacy for (the illusion of) security.
