The idea of going back during a time in which privacy was actually achievable isn’t an option for me. I refuse to live in a world where family had no idea where their loved ones were; in a world where we had to plan days, if not weeks, ahead of time to decide when to send a letter to whomever living out-of-state or out-of-country; in a world where the concept of a community was localized in small sections, and hardly ever adhered to diversity.
Privacy was a given those days. Figuring out ways in getting the world to know you, however, was a struggle. Today is much different; today is the result of millions of people who wished to publicize their lives during the “right to privacy” era – a rebellion, of sorts. When I think of privacy, I think of what we were and the struggles we had to go through, not what we are today or what we should become.
