Is Our Privacy Gone?

Did we give it away? Was privacy stolen from us?

This is not a firearms story, but an important piece for anyone involved in civil rights issues.

A new Wall Street Journal story has a fascinating look at how in just a decade many people in America and Western Europe have largely given up -- voluntarily -- their privacy via personal information, but claim that they guard their privacy fiercely.

OF COURSE, then there is always the issue of voter privacy. Funny how those in the United States who complain the most about data privacy, secret FISA warrants and such, have no problem with the government tracking voters -- from cradle to grave.

Hmmm . . .
