The issue with the lack of privacy isn't what was sold to the Public in the past as some innocuous intrusion into unimportant details of one's life. The issue is the control of your privacy means today and the direction in which it is trending.
Consider a hypothetical such as the following: Your Government has created a Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). Basically, this is a digital form of money that is programmable and controlled by your Government. With physical dollars, unless you were being investigated no one knew what you spent your money on or even when you spent your money. You can still buy the most fattening foods, illegal drugs, medicine or you can donate to your favorite cause or even Donald Trump's campaign if you want. Now, regardless of your views on any of the products or services mentioned in the previous sentence, with a CBDC, the Government would not only know what you were spending your money on, but it would be able to stop you from buying those items they didn't condone. You may enjoy a nice thick steak on occasion or everyday, but the Climate Change hypocrites have lobbied against consuming steak. The cattle ranchers may have won lawsuits that allow them to continue providing beef to the Public, but those in charge of CBDCs believe you should be vegetarian. You're banned from buying meat because they have tracked your spending because as we've been told.
"If you're not doing anything wrong, you shouldn't care about your privacy."
So, no steak. What else could a central authority that monitors your spending prohibit you from doing. Given the lengths to which out Government is going to stop Trump from beating that mummy Biden, what do you think the establishment would do to stop your donations to Trump. While I would never donate any amount to Trump, I would also never stop anyone else from doing so themselves. But, what if you didn't donate to Trump but instead simply voted for him? Without privacy, your vote would be known by those controlling the polling stations. Those corporations controlling polling stations more than likely have similar interests to those controlling the CBDCs or might also control the polling stations. Ownership in all sectors is shrinking to an ever-DECREASING number of people. Just consider the fact that Bill Gates is one of the largest farmland owners in America So, your vote for Trump is Public knowledge and Trump is the Devil created by the establishment. Do you really want those vindictive leaders in Washington D.C. in charge of the money you need to pay rent, buy groceries, heat or cool your home or fill you gas tank so you can earn more CBDC?
This is where the errosion of privacy could lead. Or, we could get lucky and the current batch of leaders pushing for less privacy and CBDCs are benevolent and those to whom they pass the torch of leadership are like just as benevolent. Either that or we get the type of leaders who have contributed to the massive wealth redistribution that has taken place since the 1980's or 90's. Looking at trends in money and wealth, which do you believe is more likely?
In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups, or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare, and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.
In "Solutions...", I provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they choose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those for whom they care.
