PRIVACY, ORTHODOXY AND DEMOCRACY
AbstractIn light of rapid technological advancement, the author believes it necessary to discuss the inherent importance of protecting privacy. He proceeds, therefore, to rationalize his apprehension toward blind technological advancement through privacy related themes. He claims that Canadian society’s laissez-faire treatment of privacy has caused it to fall behind in the three hundred year struggle to make leaders accountable to the people and subject to their control. He also speculates that systems for the invasion of privacy, if enforced by meshing law and morality, will bring us to the threshold of radical orthodoxy. The article focuses on credit reports to illustrate a future world with the characteristics of one big prison and calls for protection of privacy to guard against such an outcome.
