Who plays by the rules anyway

Private companies that gather information on citizens are out of control with power and have already stripped away everyone's rights to privacy. Since their system of profit is based upon knowledge about you, me, or any person who is alive or dead, the bottom line with these companies is that knowledge is profit. There are two primary customers for companies like this, the first are the corporations of the private sector who use your information to sell you things you do not need and the other is the government who uses the information for god knows what. Companies like ChoicePoint are gobbling up information about everyone in the private sector and using this privately gathered intelligence for government security and surveillance of its own citizens. Is this even ethical or right that a for profit company is allowed to function as part of the intelligence community with private information of citizens and co-operate with the government at high levels of security? Here is the article. If the government were to go out and do all this type of investigation about it's citizens on it's own then it would be considered highly unethical and almost too big brotherish. However, branches of the government are allowed to purchase information from these companies and use it to their own discretion without ever having to issue a warrant, tap a phone, or use surveillance in an investigation. The government has rules in place to stop the corruption of power from within the system. Not allowing the government to gather information on its citizens is one of those rules. By circumventing this rule, the game has just become unfriendly and rather unfair. It's like playing a board game with someone who just makes up their own rules as they play the game, but only when the applied rule happens to be their current position. Who plays by the rules anyway?


These types of databases can cause several potentially hazardous situations. The problems incurred by companies like Choicepoint include identity theft by hackers and black market use of this stolen intelligence. Choicepoint is being sued in California for the breaches of security in their system where hackers stole thousands of records from a database.
