Privacy, individual privacy, is an ever increasing priority. If there's not a right to privacy, I'm in favor a Constitutional amendment to establish it. But I think there is a presumption of privacy in the 4th Amendment and certainly it is presumed to be important in the HIPPA and FIRPA laws. We all want some privacy in our affairs (I'm sorry, couldn't help it).
Ashley Madison, for anyone who doesn't know, was a website designed for married people to meet other people and have affairs. It got hacked and the details of the user accounts is apparently in the hands of the hackers. This seems to have caused no end of mirth and amusement on the interwebz. What I don't see, in all the jokes and snark, is any sympathy for individual people and recognition of their right to privacy.
Yes, it was stupid to think that anything online would stay private. But we all live online, our credit cards and bank accounts, the sites we visit, the things we buy or read.
I'm willing to give others freedom of speech so I can have freedom of speech. I'm also willing to give others privacy so I can have privacy, too.
Yes, there are moral issues surrounding how we behave, but
they are personal. If I'm not supposed to be concerned about gender
reassignment surgery, gay marriage, polygamy, etc. why would I be
concerned about someone I don't know having an affair?
