What’s the biggest threat to your civil liberties?

Is it Congress crushing every loophole you grasp at for privacy?

That’s a nightmare, but there are bigger.

Is it the rise of presidential candidates who pledge to dismantle fundamental legal protections?

Good guess, but still not there – besides, previous occupants of the White House destroyed those already.

The biggest threat to your civil liberties are judicial decisions and the actions of unelected bureaucrats. Often, the deep effect of these is unclear for months or even years.

One example is a recent decision by federal judge Henry Morgan, Jr. Morgan ruled that Americans have no “expectation of privacy” in their internet protocol address (IP address), a unique identifier for a computer, smart phone, or other electronic device connected to the Internet.

You lose your privacy even if, as the suspect did in this situation, you employ defensive measures to avoid revealing your IP address, such as using a virtual private network (VPN).

According to Morgan’s analysis, while the FBI had a warrant to conduct a search of the suspect’s computer, they didn’t really need it. Why not? Morgan reasoned since hackers can break into computers, police can too.

The effect on all our liberty will be devastating.
