The analysis is done from two main perspectives, deontology and consequentialism when I lay out their main proposals for answers.

This essay deals with the normative problem of mass surveillance in the form of signal intelligence and if it can be justified as public policy. The analysis is done from two main perspectives, deontology and consequentialism when I lay out their main proposals for answers. The first part of the essay is an analysis of several key concepts involved, the most central ones being national security pitched against the security of the democracy.
In the second part comes the actual normative analysis that discusses if, and how, we can justify or not justify signal intelligence. Here I lay out a kind of normative map of how this particular problem can be understood.
The third and final part of the essay deals with my specific case that is Sweden's surveillance law commonly known as ”the FRA-law”. Sweden has been described as one of the most advanced surveillance societies in the world even before the conception of the law. Here I analyze the public inquiry document preceeding it. My essay finds that the answer to the question of justifiability is dependent on what normative perspective we adher to and how we choose to define privacy. (Less)
