I am in my 50's. I do share share in most of the beliefs of the protesters. One thing that affects us all, is a facet of corporate behavior that involves "Privacy", and I do not hear much about it. I grew up with it, and it is gone. Corporations, Federal and local government are selling our privacy wholesale. Property tax bills can be viewed online by anyone. Every time you by something, enter into a contract, visit a hospital, buy insurance, buy a phone, or shop with a card- you have had this data sold, and used to judge you. Privacy policies, tell you that you have none (if you read the small print). I think this needs to be discussed. Thank you, and keep up the pressure. John- Williston, ND.

Absolutely, and this data mining and information storage is all used for profit as well as for government surveillance.

http://eff.org fights for internet privacy rights, check them out & donate if you can.

Good point.

Privacy was included in the Declaration of Occupation of NY on Sept. 29: "They have sold our privacy as a commodity."
