First Annual Sunday Assembly Debate: Privacy vs. Security

Do you like to argue? Do you enjoy hearing other people argue? We here at Sunday Assembly believe in the spirit of disagreement and are inviting you all the first annual Sunday Assembly debate! We’ve picked a topic that is surely to ruffle some feathers and will hopefully lead to some good-hearted disagreement. The debate centers on the issue of Privacy vs. Security. Never before has the potential for government to know everything about us been so great. Technology tracks us in ways we could have never imagined. And this presents a very difficult dilemma. We want our government to keep us safe, but at what expense?

The proposition: The Federal Government has the right to access the information on the iPhone of the person responsible for the San Bernardino killings. Apple should comply with the government's request to unlock the phone.

For some context and info, you can read up on everything that’s been happening with the links below:

If you are interested in expressing your viewpoint, please email us at Give us your name and whether or not you are in support or against the proposition. You will have 5 minutes maximum to present your argument. Because this is in group format, you will not have a chance to rebutt. Rather, we will give others on your side the chance to counter. The overall goal is to encourage us all to hear from each other and the many issues pertaining to the struggle between Privacy and Security.

See you then!
