We are trying to protect our privacy, but what if privacy is already dead? What if we’re fighting a battle that can’t be won because it doesn’t exist?
Society is moving towards a time where everything is stored online. As education and technology becomes more accessible, and code is the new language option at school, we can’t hide the fact that online doesn’t mean safe anymore.
Have you seen the movie where no one can lie? It’s really funny, it’s called The Invention of Lying.
Well, what about a world where no information can be hidden?
All of a sudden, when you want to know something, all you have to do is ask. In this far off future, the term hacker is as retro as those old privacy rights that became unnecessary as policy makers realized there wasn’t much they could do to stop someone from looking up anything on their personal devices. The younger generation was always outsmarting the old when it came to code in this day and age.
What would happen in a world such as this? Everything would change. How about sending a private message to tell China the deal is off? Or planning the latest terror plot? What about your neighbor’s account balance, or your partners latest visit to Porn Hub? You name it, you know it.
How do you think privacy will change in the near and far future? Can adaptations be made?
Food for thought.
