I practiced family law when I first graduated law school and even then spouses were hacking each other’s email. GPS devices and spyware were just beginning to become the norm.
The article in today’s Wall Street Journal is written about spying in marital relationships, but the subtext is (more?) disturbing- spying is becoming commonplace in all aspects of society because we have the technology to do so.
The government as well as our schools, neighbors, friends, etc., actively chip away at privacy. This behavior feeds on itself. It’s easy to justify spying when everyone else is doing it.
It won’t stop until we make it stop.
