Relationship between Privacy and Civilization
“Once you’ve lost your privacy, you realize you’ve lost an extremely valuable thing”
– Billy Graham –
Considering the evolutionary path of modern civilizations, it is indispensable to relate the social progress of the most progressive civilizations with the progress of human rights.
In fact, until a few years ago, this relationship is expressed with the utmost expression of the right to free speech and the voting right, such as the right to privacy of individuals.
At present, in general, there is a clear recession of the rights standard but above all of the right to privacy.
This abandonment and renunciation by the institutions to the custody of individuals’ privacy is an obvious symptom of cultural and social recession, but worse of the deteriorating of the human rights.
“Privacy – like eating and breathing – is one of life’s basic requirements”
– Katherine Neville –
Any State, Nation that renounces at the custody of its citizens’ privacy, renounces the sovereignty of the rights of the society.
“The liberties of none are safe unless the liberties of all are protected”
– William O. Douglas –
Any community that abandons privacy is bound to renounce freedom. There is a deep link between civilization and privacy, much more intense than you think. It is indispensable to restore the boundaries/edges of privacy as well as a principle, also as a safeguard for the civil progress of the society.
Digital Person Concept
The person is the set of all the characteristics of the individual, and hence of tangible, ethical, behavioral, moral and spiritual physical characteristics, as well as the projection of the same individual in social life, that is, of the perception that each person gives of itself outside.
This set of features gives rise to an unrepeatable combination: when it comes to identity, from a legal point of view it is intended to speak of unique individuals with unrepeatable characteristics.
This principle must regulate and develop the protection of the Digital Rights of the person as a Digital Individual, evolving from human rights an interpretation that prevents exploitation, predation, and abuse of all personal data and metadata in the Digital Place.
“Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say”
– Edward Snowden –
