Privacy is a concern on many levels. Our very existence as individuals is made possible by the physical and biological security of our world. Privacy is the ability to know about ourselves and others without being judged. I am not saying we should completely eliminate privacy and the concerns it raises, but I am saying we should take a look at and evaluate the privacy issues we are currently facing.
I think privacy concerns are a legitimate one, but many of them are based on a false premise. Privacy is an illusion, not a reality. If we took the time to be honest with ourselves, we do not need privacy. We’re all in this together, and what makes us different on this planet is that we are not alone.
As a society, we are already becoming more aware of what privacy really means. We are less scared of government surveillance, and the government is now beginning to recognize this. So let’s stop hiding from it.
The problem is that we are so afraid of the government that we assume that the government is out to get us. This is a very dangerous belief system. It means we are less willing to trust the government to protect us but more worried about their intentions. At the end of the day, the only person responsible for the security of all of humanity and the planet Earth is the one person standing in front of you. This person is you. No one else. You are your own security.
A lifestyle that involves rid yourself of all things personal is a lifestyle that is not really something you should be doing in this day and age. You are your own security. You are responsible for your own body. You are responsible for your own mental state. You are responsible for your own actions. And you can be the victim of anything that happens to you. You are responsible for everything you do and everyone you touch.
Privacy is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of your privacy. So privacy is a very important thing to know and I think of it like a big red flag: if your privacy is violated then you will have to find a way to be responsible for that violation. In other words, if you were to decide to be a jerk in your life, you can be held accountable.
Privacy is a very important thing and just like with everything else, you can be the victim of anything that happens to you. If you allow your privacy to suffer and you are responsible for it, then you will have to be responsible for it.
A few years ago I wrote a blog post called “The Privacy Paradox” where I detailed my idea of what it means to live in a society that is privacy-centric. I went over how we have to think about privacy before we can even think about how it affects us. We have to address the things that concern us, and then we have to be responsible for those choices.
The problem with this concept is that it can be very difficult to determine what we are actually concerned about in order to address it. For example, I recently wrote a blog post called My Personal Privacy and the Privacy Paradox that outlines the first few steps in determining your privacy concerns. I was very open about what I believed to be a concern and how I would tackle it. Yet, I had no idea how I would address it.
Your privacy is what you have control over. It is the responsibility of you to make certain that your privacy is protected. This is not a matter of “doing nothing” or “being a good person.” It is a choice. It might seem like a choice to let the world know that you like to have sex with your partner, but this choice is a choice of whether or not to let the world know that you like to have sex with your partner.
