My point, reiterated

Knowledge – information – is power. Trite but true.

Governments and corporations know more and more about us, from our shopping preferences to our location at any time to what tax we pay.

Yet we know less and less about them.

It’s time to turn the tables.

Governments and corporations should know nothing more  about us individuals than they need to to do the jobs we have entrusted to them.

We, on the other hand, as citizens have a right to know everything that our government does on our behalf, and as stakeholders a right to know everything that corporations do.

In the information age, these basic rights to know are the keys to our liberty.
