Declan on Privacy
Declan McCullagh draws a distinction between private snooping and government snooping.
If you don't like Safeway's discount card, shop at Whole Foods, which doesn't offer one. If Amazon.com's recommendations about books based on your previous orders are annoying, try barnesandnoble.com or walk down to your local bookstore instead. You have a choice.
That choice vanishes when the government demands data.
