About "Miranda Rights"
This case leverages rights-oriented impacts without devolving into the circularity of defining privacy as a right. First, either subsume or outweigh your opponent’s value with human rights. If your opponent’s value involves a moral objective, encompass it with your value by demonstrating how its moral significance is ultimately predicated on human rights: Because morality—principles of right and wrong for governing our behavior—is intrinsically a social concern, it depends on a particular conception of humanity to function properly. In other words, moral objectives (like justice, for instance) are reducible to rights. If your opponent’s value is pragmatic, use the reasons to prefer to establish that morality supersedes pragmatism, which automatically impacts to preferring human rights as the value.
Having established the value framework, you should use the first contention to extend the universality of rights to the accused. For rhetorical effectiveness, acknowledge the pervasive reluctance to treat suspected criminals with dignity, but affirm that it remains nonetheless a necessity to act morally and protect innocents. Then the subsequent contentions invariably follow within the framework—privacy checks government intervention (which violates rights) but truth-seeking facilitates it.
