homework questions 18

This week’s readings discussed the dichotomy that exists between providing for security and preserving civil liberties. The readings further examined the Department of Homeland Security and its ability to respond to future threats facing our nation. Applying and analyzing the information you gathered from both assigned readings and personal research, offer the following information:

1. What are the primary initiatives implemented as a result of the PATRIOT Act, their impact upon civil liberties, and whether steps taken in the USA Freedom Act addressed them in an effective manner.

2. The use of encryption in cell phones and the inability by counterterrorism agencies to access such information was highlighted in the aftermath of the San Bernardino, CA attacks. Regarding this issue, do you feel access to such information is an infringement on one’s civil liberties? How do you believe government can best balance security and civil liberties regarding this and related issues?
