Privacy is a human basic right

#1

Privacy is a fundamental human right recognized in the UN Declaration of Human Rights, the International Convenant on Civil and Political Rights and in many other international and regional treaties. Privacy underpins human dignity and other key values such as freedom of association and freedom of speech. It has become one of the most important human rights issues of the modern age.

For me personally, we need a balance… Between total privacy and auditability… I. E. If there is no way to audit the total number of coins in circulation in a privacy coin, there is no way to determine if it has been compromised. Mimblewimble allows both a high level of privacy as well as opt in auditability along with scalability.

Besides discussion about coins, I agree with @beniissembert . I started getting concerned about privacy the past year or so. Once i realized you’re free till you try to do something and you get asked a bunch of questions. Also now that we are basically one with technology, it’s never been so important. I get calls from pushy salespeople who got my number god knows where. Not sure where I’m going with this…I feel strange when my dad says he’s not concerned about privacy and he doesnt mind they put 2 freaking cameras at entrance and exit of our small small village(like 50 people). What scares me is people not realizing the importance of it.
God bless all

Privacy is and always has been a tool to reach freedom.
If you give a good look on our modern history, each time a ‘power’ tried to get full control on an ‘entity’, it always began with harming individual privacy.

@beniissembert you’re absolutely right. Is it just my impression or we are actually witnessing a tendency in society to be polarized either to the “I do not wish to care about privacy” to “privacy is in danger!”?

Fortunately there’s blockchain now
