Right Values

Is The Lack Of Privacy Making Us More Honest?

A few select quotes from the article:

As technology develops further, the nakedness could get so pervasive that anyone with a connected device may be able to watch almost anything. As a fallout of this total nakedness, most will think ten times before doing something remotely dishonest or unethical. Overall, this should make society more honest overall. At long last, the utopian dreams of the founders of the internet and open source systems might be on the verge of coming true.

The cost of misconduct is far greater today because of our transparent lives. The only answer is to live the right values. If this isn’t fully clear to some people, it will be soon.

If we are honest in our words, deeds and thoughts, we need not worry about our nakedness because then, we will have nothing to hide.

The fundamental problem with all of this is the “who” in who is determining the “right values” and, as always, see the “if you’ve got nothing to hide” argument against privacy.
