I’ll show you mine, if you show me yours!
What would it mean to have a society where everything is able to be seen by anyone? I don’t intend this as some sort of generalisation, I mean literally! Everything you or I do is able to be seen by anyone who chooses. Radical I know!
Now I get it, the first reaction is one of aversion. But for a moment just think about it. The vast majority of the things we do, no one cares about. And we all do things from time to time that we’re glad no one else gets to see or know about but that’s the same for everyone. We’ve all made mistakes and if someone’s a victim of harassment due to errors they’ve made it’s just as easy to find the persecutors blunders. We’re all human and we all err.
The real evil and where the greatest secrets are, is the secrets which the powerful want to hide. What do they not want us to know and what if we knew it? Maybe you’re told to protect your privacy so those who really have the power keep their own from you.
The powerful care more about their dirty secrets
than they care about my toilet habits.
…but I care about THEIR secrets!
As this video helps to explain privacy is fading but what we really need is to ensure we can access what they don’t want to share. The governments, The corporations, The military, The ones with the vested interest in wanting to know all our secrets while keeping everything they do hidden.
