The paper examines the literature to explore how the use of mass communication and innovations in technology have affected security and justice issues. The paper also looks at how the rights of American citizens have been adversely affected by the USA PATRIOT Act and other recent legislation. The paper believes that when and if the current real and perceived threats against the nation are resolved, the concept of justice will reassume center stage and civil rights advocates will demand the rights guaranteed them by the U.S. Constitution rather than the watered-down rights offered today. The paper concludes that justice and security are not mutually exclusive, and a balanced approach can be achieved in any situation, even when the nation is at war.
