The connection is all. Privacy = Liberty. In my brain.

There is no such thing as the "right to privacy". We simply do not have that right in our (US) Constitution. We have the inherrent right that our privacy will not be violated in order to violate our other rights, but we have no right to privacy.

Libery is synonymous with freedom. Freedom to do anything as long as it is not prohibited by law, or so long as you do not injure other people's by doing so.Liberty includes the right to exsits and the right to be free from arbitrary personal restraint. Privacy is necessarily included in liberty. Privacy means to the exclusion of the public. Privacy is part of your liberty, the freedom to do things to the exclusion of the public.

Liberty is our total freedom of expression, thinking & living in our society. But it should not be at the cost others discomfort. Privacy means private things which should be handled by none other than ourselves. No person including our parents, relatives or friends have right to interfere in our privacy.

To be free, or have liberty, includes being able to be entitled to be alone (or private). A right to privacy is a fundamental right included in our Bill of Rights (wich also includes the right to life, libert, and the pursuit of happiness, even if that happiness comes by simply being left alone)
