If you have no privacy, then you have no safety.

Privacy is good for some things but too much privacy leads to bad things just like to little privacy does its a balance.

Loss of privacy leads to loss of freedom.

I think privacy on the Internet and Windows died a long time ago.
Want privacy? Stop using the Internet.

As mentioned above, striking the right balance of protecting Consumer ID (Credit card/bank card, Home address) though darknet is a prime place to see companies/individuals flogging off all this info for the highest bidder.

Sadly enough the pendulum only ever seems to swing between extremes, too little or too much.

My privacy is very important, but I feel like I do enough to keep myself out of harms way in terms of risk of ID theft and so on. The sad fact is that I've kind of come to terms with people monitoring what I write and say online, so I know that's not an issue. Just never write your username or password down anywhere.

It's not a good thing, though, this intrusion of our privacy but it's the reality we live in.

I'm not too concerned about my privacy. I understand that there should be some - just that I have nothing to hide/no need for it. I learned a long time ago that if you're on the Internet - there's no such thing as "ultimate privacy". Even if you're not - another company will undoubtedly have your records accessible through the Internet in some way or another. Long story short: in the modern day, you're not given much privacy in terms of who you are, what you do, and the likes. This is why I've been rather candid about my identity in many ways on forums and chat services alike. I am who I am, lol.

I have nothing to hide other then what I am legally required to do so by the CAF . Other then that meh, my life is an open book. I am not ashamed of any of it nor does anyone else knowing about it bother me in the slightest.

The right to privacy is very important to me but not for my own sake. I don't need it really but some people do and they should be allowed to hide the information they want to hide. It's all related to the same thing, freedom of speech and whatnot. To some people privacy is security.

Freedom of speech does not automatically mean freedom from consequences. There are too many of a criminal and terrorist bent using these archaic ideals you're espousing to seriously entertain them. The world has changed ( and not for the best) and we have to change the way we handle interaction and personal security.

It's easy to insult my stance when you sit comfortable in your white bread world sipping a Starbucks skinny mocha but in the real world it's not so easy. Plenty of good men and women have died because people like you think privacy is worth the odd flag draped coffin. If you have a real issue with something say so, don't hide behind outdated ideals of privacy being the only thing worthwhile.
