When setting out to travel, destination is all important. If you don’t have a clear idea of where you want to go, you will either end up somewhere else, or wander around like someone on a gap year, till the money runs out.
GDPR and Data Protection is nonsense.
More than that it is stupid, expensive and dangerous. It is as silly as Equality and as impractical as Feminism.
There I have said it. The thunderbolts will rain down on my head. I have blasphemed.
This is not a justification. It is an explanation. Disagree as you will, but Equality, Feminism Data Protection and GDPR are all nonsense.
They are blind alleys, they are expensive, consume passion, waste human effort and all fundamentally flawed.
I will let you fume about Feminism and Equality until I recharge my cranky tanks. Today is all about GDPR and Data Protection.
The idea that Data has to be protected is fundamentally flawed. Data is Data.
Like water it is meant to flow. It is a form of knowledge.
That is a given.
Data is Latin and it means “that which is given”
The idea that knowledge should be protected,” kept safe” belongs in days of the Inquisition.
All information should flow. Our economy depends on it.
Only politicians and the clergy want to keep things from you.
Who care if every one knows my bank details, my address, how much I drink or my politics.
Who cares. I don’t.
These things should all be in the public domain.
Secrecy produces crime. Turn the lights on. Let everyone’s earnings be known.
Let everyone’s criminal record be known. Let’s know who lives next door, and what they do when the lights go out.
Let’s put an end to privacy.
Let’s all grow up. Privacy is an an illusion anyway.Google knows everything , God is supposed to, The CIA and MI5 are trying to. why shouldn’t we.
Private thoughts can lead to depression, can lead to perversion. They are exclusive, lonely and the sole cause on madness.
Why shouldn’t we know everything. Data should flow.
One proviso. People should be protected. Yes people should be protected, not Data.
Hurting a person, taking advantage of a person, embarrassing a person, humiliating a person, should be wrong and punished in the way theft and assault are.
Let all data flow,and hold people accountable to how they use it.Hold people accountable for what they think. That’s what Jesus is reputed to have said.
Te destination is wrong. We set out to protect data, we should have travelled to protect people.
More travelling will make matters worse. Think how you can look after your customers, your friends, those you will never meet. They are you in other bodies.
Look after people not data.
