“Men do not learn much from the lessons of history and that is the most important of all the lessons of history”
– Aldous Huxley –
Modern history that is common to all peoples has been traditionally seen as strifes and battles to defend the rights of individuals from powerful individuals and organisations.
The private sphere has always been a goal to be attained, the place to be protected from external interference.
Inalienable rights, that is those that are natural and are not dependent on the laws or customs of any particular culture or government, are one of the most obvious consequences of modern rights acquired through pressure and revolutions. Currently all of these individuals’ rights are not protected or safeguarded in the Digital Place, whereby in the apparent anarchy the new ‘masters’ are using, abusing, manipulating and sharing data, goods and personal information of billions of individuals.
The current condition of digital space, especially the surface area, is in the same primitive condition comparable to many other physical places that in the past have historically been explored, conquered, subjugated and controlled by the few who have arbitrarily captured and occupied them.
At the moment, in the digital dimension, there is a clear lack of protection for the individual when considering the abstractness of personal data as a variable, available and transferable item that can be used by anyone who has the possibility but without any responsibility.
In order to prevent and eliminate a degeneration of this dimension it is necessary to define new boundaries within which all parties must act to ensure the effective freedom of use of this anarchic space which has degenerated into an extreme form of mercantile oligopoly.
It is imperative to broaden the current human and individual rights by integrating a new generation of Digital Righs derived and developed from current law sources for the ultimate guarantee of the individual’s protect in the Digital Place.
The Reconquest Foundation proposes the new Digital Law as an inalienable right of every individual.
