CONCERNS FOR PRIVACY HAVE RUN AMOK AND PROMOTE FRAUD AND GOVERNMENT DOMINATION
Richard A. Epstein National Review, September 27, 1999, TITLE: Privacy, Please; Thinking about a troublesome concept. // acs-VT2001
In this context, we see privacy run amok. Rather than functioning as a bulwark of freedom, it becomes, not to put too fine a word on it, a handmaiden to private fraud and government domination. This concealment does not just protect privacy and tranquillity; it forces other people to part with hard cash against their will.
