Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case, when even our homes and cars are being created to spy on us in the name of “efficiency and simplicity.” It should be obvious that I really don’t have a lot against technology in general, but I’m simple-minded enough to be concerned about the increasing lack of anything resembling privacy and enhanced dependence on a less than completely secure Internet in our daily lives. I believe that everyone needs a place where they can just be themself; without being forced into a “transparency” which penetrates too deeply and implies some “socially mandated need to share.”
I think that we used to have a place called a “soul” which was personal and private, but that’s probably changed, too, in this techno-dominated world. Still, I think it’s important to protect that place as a place of personal privacy, however crazy that may seem. Everybody really doesn’t need to know everything.
