Following the establishment of the egalitarian democratizing political documents, such as Magna Carta, the Constitution of the United States, and the Declaration of Independence (which referred to a right to life), there has developed a rather basic division of human affairs and activities into those which are public and those which are private. Currently, this public-private interface of activity is under inspection, both in regards to the computer compilation of personal data, that is, a national death index , and in regards to the personal-private nature of police investigations . These thoughts are directed toward the public-private hiatus present in the work of the medical examiner or coroner.
