- We don’t have privacy anymore. . . .
- There’s nothing I can do. . . .
- It’s too late. The genie’s already out of the bottle. . . .
- People don’t care about that (note the circular logic there)
It’s time to value individual privacy a little bit more than that. Individual privacy has been eroded in the past decade or two. It goes beyond political affiliation; both parties have supported these invasions.
Basic psychology and economics teaches us that the less of a commodity that exists, the more valuable it is. True privacy is scarce today; we need to value it much more than we do.
