Fightback. Join the revolution now
Lately, our right to privacy and maintaining our reputation seems to be an uphill battle.
The general disregard towards our right to protect our privacy and reputation is challenge as never before compared to any of the past generations.
Safeguarding our privacy and reputation is nothing about having something to hide. Privacy is about something to protect. Today, our reputation is who we are. That is what we believe in, what people believe in and who you want to become.
Privacy is the right to one self. It is what gives us the ability to share with the world who we are, on our own terms, for people to understand what we are trying to be. Without privacy, without a good reputation, we lose the ability to be ourselves.
The right to privacy is the source, the quintessence of all other rights.
Freedom of speech doesn’t have a lot of meaning if it is depriving us or anyone of a quiet space to decide what it is that you actually want to say or do and this last year was an unfathomable blow to the case of personal and public privacy.
People and Institutions are falling from the skies like dead flies. This is the result of a broken legal system, using the internet to destroy lives and reputations. Phones at sexual assault hotlines all over the world are ringing off the hooks, organizations are scrambling for help and media love it.
With the aggressive and increasing rapid demise of our basic rights to privacy in plain sight, it would be careless for anyone to only rely on businesses or governments to protect oneself. It is now up to each one of us to do whatever is necessary to protect our way of life and prevent anonymity in public to become a thing of the past.
