Seems like most of us don't worry much about the info being collected by others, I really don't think it's a big deal, but eventually...will it be?

So someone knows my habits, location, voice sample, photo, fingerprint, possibly iris scan, interests, opinions, birthdate...ummm probably some stuff I forgot. I don't worry about it...what can they do?

Target ads is what they say, I'm ok with that as i use adblock.

Any concerns at all?

In practice I have nothing anyone would want to know about, but I'm mildly disgruntled by the idea of people being able to find out stuff about me on principle because anything anyone could learn about me would be embarrassing.

Edward Snowden brought up a good point on this:

"Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say."


With that said, I still don't care.

This is why it is a problem:

Let's take some example just to illustrate the point. Let's say some Martin Luther king sort of character was helping to change people to think in a positive way which went against the ideals of the government. It is a good thing for the people, but not for the profit and power of those with the profit and power.

So, those with the power, would be able to go to people and say "Top secret terrorist investigation, give me all your records." Then, they use that to hire a hitman to take out the Martin Luther king character, and call him crazy, have him die in custody, or something like that.

The internet, if left anonymous, can allow for such movements to be led anonymously, which would prevent those sorts of things. Most people, historically, that have led movements for positive things have indeed wound up assassinated.

Now, you could say that your government would not do that, and you might be right. But the fundamental principle of capitalism is that which is profitable, occurs, with a price set by supply and demand. So, since it is an incredibly profitable power, then it will eventually get exploited by some government at some time.

Is it freedom of speech, if everyone is watching who is saying what?

In the roman era, voting was originally done with raising of hands. They had to make it anonymous because people that didn't vote how others wanted, kept winding up dead.

If you look at history, it is easy to see why. That is why our privacy is important, and why there are laws and amendments that protect it. It is a requirement for citizens to be truly free from the state.

Alternatively, the movements could be controlled by the Reptilianati via chemtrails, and they would keep from us the secret of a jet fuel that can melt steel.

And because it's anonymous, we would never know it was Queen Betsy The Second, or Old Man Withers, the owner of the haunted amusement arcade!

Then you must know little about history.

There are greedy power hungry people in the world, and they will do whatever they at the expense of any other to satisfy that.

There are nations with dictators, and pretend democracy. And men in power make laws to make that easier.

The people in those nations are people like you and me. No different. Not more stupid. Some people live in countries where it is so bad they riot in the streets.

And you are indifferent as to laws and regulations that will make it easier or more difficult for those greedy and power hungry men to exploit citizens.

You are free to believe as you wish, butbut imo, you deserve to be led by a self service dictator.

But I think you might start to care, once it got way beyond your control. You can see how much some people care in some countries where the corruption is flagrant.

It's a new technology that is being used to play a game that existed forever. Obviously I am not saying that internet privacy has been a problem since the dawn of recorded history.

But I did provide an example of the importance of privacy on voting in the Senate in the early Roman empire.

When u know your history you know what sort of men exist, and what they are capable of, and how often they do t really give a shit about your average Joe.

The NSA doesn't care about that. Obviously for your own protection from other citizens it is good advice, but the NSA links all your accounts based on information from your ip, your service provider, your bank account, your E-mail and phone number. It's not basic like a guy googling you. It is advanced algorithms and hardware infrastructure that can trace you and build a profile, even if you are careful, unless you go real paranoid and encrypt everything.

I should care more than I do.
I feel like making a lot of effort to preserve your anonimity only makes other people suspicious of your actions, even if you aren't doing anything. Your ISP can see that you're using Tor, they assume you're hiding something.

I wouldn't care if others are suspicious. Also, Tor is way too frustrating to use. I guess I'd trade Internet speed for privacy.

I'm pretty uptight about my privacy. I guess I just figure nobody's interested enough to invade my privacy online.

Well, it's worrying only in the sense that someone could probably collect enough data in order to create fake social media profiles and make use of publicly available photos to potentially ruin someone's reputation.

Full names, phone numbers, addresses and family names are the main things I make an effort to protect.
