I will never submit to Big Brother, and I don’t think anyone else should either. However as one lives one’s life online, as more and more of us do, one is going to be tracked, one’s purchases analyzed, and social media profiles peeped on. This is just reality and we do need to come to terms with this.
Privacy still exists, but only for those who can live offline. Indeed for those who are able to live without email, social media etc, their privacy might be as secure as ever and perhaps more so. If one can go completely off the data grid one can still maintain one’s privacy. For those of us who are addicted, who do much of our socializing, work, banking, etc online, privacy has pretty much vanished.
