  • [Informatief] Kersttoespraak: "Privacy bepaalt wie wij zijn"

    "Als de overheid echt wil weten hoe het met ons gaat, dan is vragen altijd goedkoper dan bespioneren." Dat zei Edward Snowden in een "Alternative Christmas Message" op de zender "Channel 4".

    Great Britain’s George Orwell warned us about this kind of information. The types of collection in the book – microphones and video cameras, TVs that watch us – are nothing compared what we have available today. We have sensors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go.

    Think about what that means for the privacy of the average person. A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all. They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves – an unrecorded, unanalysed thought.

    And that’s a problem because privacy matters. Privacy allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be.
