Who needs Privacy?

A lot of people make excuses for ignoring the threats and intrusions, both corporate and governmental, upon their privacy.
  • 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.
