Discussion on: What's the big deal with privacy?

It's hard to have a healthy discussion when your first statement is telling that my opinion is wrong. But barring that:

  • Any door I lock is for the convenience of other people more than mine as I wouldn't like to scar anyone walking into something that they would want to erase from their memories.
  • I actually used to not lock my phone until I realized if someone stole it they literally had a free phone. But besides that anyone is welcome to view my gallery.
  • The issue with sharing my password would be identity theft, besides also i don't know why I would allow people to empty my bank accounts.

I respect your opinion on the importance of privacy and you gave great examples.

I do disagree with "It's a basic human nature to value privacy." Any scientific evidence to support that? I would argue we value more community and sharing than keeping being private.
