The West Wing S01E04 Five Votes Down
Aaron Sorkin and The West Wing being prophets as usual, talking about the right of privacy in 1999.
So they’re picking a new Supreme Court judge, and turns out he doesn’t believe in the right to privacy. You can skip to 3:20. As always, Bartlet fucking KILLS it starting at 4:08.
“It’s about the next twenty years. Twenties and thirties it was the role of government; fifties and sixties it was civil rights; the next two decades are going to be privacy.

|Jordan :||You had a drink?|
|Leo :||I'm an alcoholic. I don't have one drink. I don't understand people who have one drink. I don't understand people who leave half a glass of wine on the table. I don't understand people who say they've had enough. How can you have enough of feeling like this? How can you not want to feel like this longer? My brain works differently.|
