"The right to be let alone"- a statement crafted by Supreme Court Justices Warren and Brandeis- laid the foundation for the understanding of an implied constitutional right to privacy. Justice Louis Brandeis, a critical actor in the development of this right, would argue for extensive privacy protections in today's digital era. Brandeis acknowledged that the right to privacy is not absolute, but he would argue that individual privacy must be protected in an age of technology that makes government and corporate surveillance more covert.
