Can we PLEASE talk about privacy, not GDPR, now? by Sebastian GregerSebastian Greger (Sebastian Greger)

Privacy first, compliance second.

Why does it seem like the debate about privacy has become moral? And whose morals? There is no such thing as a natural right to privacy. There is no natural right to anything. Natural rights were an invention of the European Enlightenment, mere social (and legal) constructs.

Rights only exist because of laws. What is the intention of this law? Can we ever agree on a universal legal definition privacy? What if our cultural understandings of privacy are so far removed from each other that we can’t even have a meaningful conversation on the topic?

“The meaning of Karma is in the intention. The intention behind the action is what matters. Those who are motivated only by a desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.”
