RIGHTS and FREEDOMS
PART. I. RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES
Section. 10. Every law abiding citizen shall be entitled to privacy; unsolicited photographing, paparazzi, and the publishing of falsehoods shall be prohibited unless important to our nation’s security or well being, and these prohibitions shall supersede the rights to freedom of speech and freedom of the press in these instances:
Since privacy is necessary for liberty, and intimacy is necessary for happiness, and both are necessary for any life worth living, then any violation of privacy is a violation of the unalienable rights affirmed by Our Declaration of Independence, yet not guaranteed by our current Constitution. The justification for invasion of privacy holds only if it provides society with information important to society’s security or well being, like recording the commission of crime or corruption. Our current Constitution wrongly holds freedom of speech and of the press in higher esteem than the right to privacy in the case of the paparazzi and the tabloids. The Valentine Constitution instead prohibits the harassment of celebrities and their children by money grubbing paparazzi who are not practicing journalism, not keeping powerful forces in check, and not informing our Citizens of any facts significant to protecting our safety or our democracy. Instead they often endanger the public safety, create a public nuisance, and traumatize any children involved.
