Which value is more important in life: security or privacy?
I can take care of my own security if you can ensure that whats private stays provate
Privacy is security
Trump attempted to get the DoJ to force web providers to turn over email addresses for people that looked to find details of protests during his inauguration.
And Betsy Devos's brother, Erik Prince has been soliciting the administration to pay for a private spy network.
There is a convergence of unscrupulous individuals wielding immense power now that are not respectful of citizens nor mindful of needed boundaries of propriety.
You have nothing to fear if you have nothing to hide. There is no such thing as privacy anymore and ppl need to get used to it.
Privacy from what? What's to hide? *feels the foil hat brigade coming*
Your sex life, what you do in bed, sexual orientation, what your hobbies are, what you enjoy with your down time, or anything that you hold deeply personal..... it’s no ones business. It’s not that you need to hide it, but you should feel free of unwarranted scrutiny.
Your sex life (alive) what you do in bed (sleep) sexual orientation (orientated to my husband) what your hobbies are (cooking camping and karaoke) what you enjoy with your down time (drink). This is fun! What else you got?
You can be facetious all you want, or perhaps you don’t understand the premise of my argument. But you can say all you wish while you remain anonymous on an anonymous political website. Would you want me to know your address, and where you go on the weekends, or what you wear to bed? Actually, there is no need to answer those questions, because it’s none of my business. But go ahead and flaunt your ignorance.
Send me your address slappy so I can give you cameras and mics to set up in your house for me to watch. I’ll watch carefully and make sure I give you and your family suggestions on what to buy whenever I feel like it based on your daily activities. If you’re into cooking I have a lot of recipes to send you. Forget searching for your own because I already know what you want. Just make sure you don’t break the law because I’ll come with guys in uniform to lock you in a cage. The corporations you see now will have enough info on you that any other competing company who cannot see what you’re doing is so far behind in the game that you will never see real competition. It’s great for monopoly.
I am completely aware. The thing you are worried about already exists. My sister makes serious bank in "customer analytics" she can statistically predict that you are more likely to pay your overdue bill if she has an anglo male British voice call you asking for $ based on all the information her company has bought about you. *gogo gadget foil hat!*
"They" already know all that AND MORE
It’s a slippery slope. Nobody needs to be watching you 100 percent of the time. It’s not all about you either. It’s about companies buying your information. Smaller companies will not be able to buy your info so companies like amazon will get larger and prevent any competition.
Privacy. It's why I stay off most social media platforms. And probably why I like MMO's so much. Pseudonyms are awesome.
The privacy ship. has sailed. Facebook Google etc knows more about you than your parents, friends and spouse.
We allowed it to happen by letting them collect data which can. then be sold, hacked or otherwise. collected by others firms and agencies.
I am guilty of Google invasion but I saw the Facebook business model years ago and do not use that data collector.
This is honestly how I feel, but I still do what I can to maintain as much privacy as possible. Duck Duck Go is a good alternative to google that doesn't (or at least on a very minimum level if they are) track or collect info on you and still had a decent search engine.
No doubt. Might look at it.
What's the point of privacy when you're dead?
What's the point of security when you're still dead? Can't protect you from everything.
And in a world where information is key, privacy is one of the best security measures you can focus on.
They are not mutually exclusive......
No but the question asks which one you think is more important...
Privacy is gone...
I don't get the infatuation with privacy passed a basic level. Security is way more important.
Focus on security, and enjoy your loss of Liberty.
Does not understand the infatuation with privacy.... says the anonymous man on the anonymous political website.
It’s a trade off. To me we have gone way too far in the direction of security and have given up too much freedom.
Privacy is the best security, along with having a loaded firearm within arm's reach at all times.
I want the government to secure our privacy, and always honor and hold in high regard, our right to be left alone. You want security without privacy? Move to North Korea.
With no privacy you have no security. With no security you have no privacy.
With privacy comes security.
Security in terms of? That’s too open ended.
Privacy from government
Security from my mate
I mean if you look at war torn places where people don’t know if theyre going to die on their way to work, fuck I’ll take security.
Uzbekistan isn’t real neither is Krygyztan. Submit to you slav rulers of Slovakia and Ukraine.
Security. I don't give a rat's ass about privacy...providing my personal info can't be used against me in some way (which is the only reason why I don't reveal my real name or where I work).
I don’t make much of a distinction. Privacy is a subset under the broader umbrella of security, and if my privacy isn’t secure, neither am I.
If the government could invade your privacy in the name of security, then your privacy is not secure.
Would you be ok if they told you that in order to protect against acts of terrorism they needed to filter everyone’s calls, emails and texts, and conduct warrantless searches? In that case you have security at the expense of privacy.
Your first reply is just saying the same thing I already said.
And no. Obviously, I would not be OK with hearing the lie yet again that filtering anyone's calls, emails, texts or conducting warrantless searches would help protect anyone from acts of terrorism. In that case, at best, I would have the weak illusion of physical security at the expense of the privacy that is the core of true security. Like I said, if my privacy isn’t assured, I have no security.
I value my privacy very much.
We have noticed. You’re one of the most active people here but also one we know very little about.
When I was young, my grandmother was private about everything and I thought it was odd. Now I’m the same way. I’m aware of it and fight it. I think it’s the Scandinavian blood in me.
I have a sister... buy her a drink and she’ll tell you her whole life story. Haha no joke.
OH, interesting. If I buy her two will she talk about you too. How do I get in touch with her, can I get her number please 😂
Haha.. you sly dog. :)
I guess that was a no. I’m not winning this game.
Privacy. People should take care of themselves.
With privacy you have security
Without security, you won’t have privacy.
Privacy. I can secure myself.
This user is currently being ignored
Lol why can’t I?
Lightning can strike anyone. A terrorist can hit anybody. We could go to war and people will die.
I’m talking about personal security. I can handle myself well enough where I don’t need to give up privacy. I feel very secure in myself.
Which value is more important?
Privacy, because I can secure myself.
Security is a fantasy.
Ill take privacy.
I trade taxes for security. Leave my privacy alone.
Nobody can ensure security, so why give up privacy for people who will probably not be able to give you security?
Would you rather A) have complete security and no privacy or B) complete privacy but no security
Securities is more important for me because the safety of myself and those around me is more important than privacy
To quote Benjamin Franklin: "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
I was wondering how long it was gonna take for someone to repeat that...
He was right then and he's still right.
I wholly disagree. There are so many things in this world that require giving up freedom in exchange for safety.
Yea like flying. And we all know the TSA has single handedly ended terrorism.
Definitely privacy. Security is just preservation, which doesn’t matter if you’re rights are routinely violated.
I always want to be secure. I tend to size up my surroundings to make sure I can escape if I have to.
In most cases the people who want your privacy cannot guarantee your security, so it’s not even worth considering
