Comment: Walter Block is right

Walter Block is right

Not only do you not have a right to privacy, you don't have a right to free speech.

You have a right to free speech on or with your property.

You have a right to exclude people from your property so you can have privacy.

You do not have the right to force someone else to fund your positive right to speech or privacy.

Just as your right to self defense doesn't mean I have to buy you a gun.

So too your right to free speech doesn't mean I have to buy you a printing press.

Similarly, your right to privacy doesn't mean I have to buy you a firewall, a privacy fence, dark car window tinting, and blackout shades.

Now the NSA does NOT have the right to force you to pay for them to force providers to have instant access to all of your data.

This is a subtle and advanced nuance of liberty which I know you have no hope of comprehending.

But some other reader will.
