"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." -- Michael Rivero

In today’s world, privacy is becoming increasingly scarce, which has resulted in Airbnb guests frequently using bug detectors to safeguard their personal space. The trend of hidden cameras and surveillance devices in private accommodations is alarming and infringes upon the fundamental right to privacy. This article delves into why bug detectors are a helpful tool and a companion for anyone concerned about covert surveillance during their travels.

The right to privacy is integral to various international human rights documents and national constitutions. When guests rent a property, they expect privacy, particularly in personal areas like bedrooms and bathrooms. Bug detectors can be used proactively to ensure this right is not violated. They clearly convey that privacy is not something to be taken lightly but rather a fundamental principle that must always be respected.

A bug detector can discourage unethical hosts who may consider placing hidden cameras. It conveys a strong message that guests are careful and won’t tolerate any violation of their privacy. This caution is crucial today, where technology has made monitoring individuals without consent effortless.
