“I couldn’t agree more with your assessment of privacy as contingent on class. A lot of people believe that the privacy question only matters to a bunch of white male libertarian geeks who don’t have any real problems to worry about, like putting food on the table or adequate medical care. But I’ve found that often the most marginalized people are the ones who suffer the consequences of privacy intrusions most. The wealthy have ways of sweeping things under the rug. The poor, not so much.”
