Privacy is the bedrock of personhood. It is the right that ensures the encapsulation of the person. All else – self-determination, agency, etc. – derive from this basic protection which we must treat as an inalienable human right.
@aral I think we agree on that. The question is not if, but how.
And as Edward Snowden said: even if you don't "need" privacy for yourself, you still benefit from it, because society needs it, as it is the basis for all other human rights.
