The idea of privacy is an illusion.
Ordinary people have never had privacy – we are always subject to observation.
It is those who hold real power who are most terrified of ordinary people gaining the power to observe them.
The last thing an NSA wants is someone watching them.
To me, it seems logical that the only way to get around the asymmetric power issues implicit in any in depth discussion of privacy issues is to give the power of observation to everyone.
Brings a whole new level of meaning to the old saying “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance” (which seems true enough to me).
