The illusion of privacy (and what we actually care about)

The illusion of privacy (and what we actually care about):

You probably have very little privacy at all, giving it up a long time ago.

If you’ve got a charge card, the card company already knows what you do, where you go, how you spend your money, what your debt is like. If you use a cell phone or a computer, someone upstream already has access to where you go, what you buy, what you type, and on and on.

No, you don’t really have a privacy.

[This bugged me a lot for years, but the system is rigged against you, and I decided that it wasn’t worth fighting. I’ve nothing to hide. But that doesn’t mean I like it… or wouldn’t change it if I could.]
