LEARNING DESPITE OUR UNIVERSAL BANTU EDUCATION

ELECTRONIC PRIVACY

 Electronic privacy is one of the most over debated topics for ten years running. We hear from thousands of experts, officials and hysterical porn addicts. Each and every one of them approaches the issue from one of two viewpoints: Privacy at all cost versus public security at all cost. I believe these to be pre-agreed opposites to serve as fake discussion issue while the Orwellian agenda is happening around us anyway. The true solution is much simpler, cheaper and safer. We stop worrying about electronic privacy on anything you cannot secure reliably. Let them openly read your letters and scrutinise your shopping lists. None of that is new, King Solomon did it. The nosy old woman at the post office did it. Then we open the Book of Public Accounts. Enact a read-only public server, open to any citizen at any time. The data can be updated at the end of every working day. It’s that easy.
