Thoughts on Privacy

The only absolute privacy is a thought you have not shared.


Sharing thoughts and ideas is the first breach of privacy.

Intentionally spreading information sacrifices much if not 
all privacy.

Privacy is largely a fantasy.

The best protection against harm is to lead a caring and careful life.

Pride is the enemy of privacy.

Even when privacy is among intimates it is not truly private.

The only privacy is one that is unexpressed.

Privacy and solitude are similar but not the same.

Society is inherently public.

Privacy in society is an illusion.

Triadic Philosphy sees all action as social.

Doing something alone and in private is a social convention.

Our macro-environment expresses our attitude to privacy.

Privacy is an illusory commercial product.

Secrecy is an expensive effort to counter reality.

The rejection of ethics accompanies the illusion of privacy.

An ethical life makes public life possible.

Privacy is not the same thing as secrecy.

Secrecy is as illusory as privacy.

Secrecy is inherent in the construction of power.

Power is the forbidden fruit of the unethical will.

Philanthropy should become the struggle for human rights. #tolerance #democracy #helpfulness.

Capitalism needs to get behind #tolerance #democracy  and #helpfulness.

Nationalism needs to diminish in the interests of a non-violent war-free world. #tolerance #democracy #helpfulness.

#Tolerance #democracy  and #helpfulness is not utopian.  It is hard-nosed realism.

#Tolerance #democracy  and #helpfulness. is not collectivism, it is ethical individualism.

To achieve the goal of world change, spread #tolerance #democracy  and #helpfulness.

Use #tolerance #democracy  and #helpfulness individually or together to raise ethical consciousness.

Characterization Has Always Been A Synonym for Curse

There are two things in life that we confuse. Values and character. Values are what make us do what we do. They are freely chosen. They require acts of will to attain fruition in deeds. Then there is character which has nothing to do with freedom and everything to do with how you are seen by others and by yourself.

Proof of Google’s Continuing Bias Against Associated Content – Yahoo Contributor Network

The following was indexed immediately from my Blogger blog Short Form Content at Blogger:

Short Form Content at Blogger: Mildred Purse hails Sarah Palin’s decision not to run: “Mildred Purse hails Sarah Palin’s decision not to run”

The following from Associated Content Yahoo Contributor Network  was promoted and has not been indexed:

Sarah Palin Says She Will Not Run – Associated Content from Yahoo! – “Sarah Palin Says She Will Not Run”

It is not unusual for Google to get around to indexing Associated Content material if I post it here.

Needless to say this is a tendentious process and would be unnecessary if Mr. Cutts and company would relent and find a different way to ensure quality content without zapping and downfrading entire domains, particulary of competitors.

All About Google

All about Google, the dominator for good or ill. Google has the power to make and to destroy. Google has stated that its intent is to know us the better to serve us. This gets us into the realm of institutional hubris. The following posts are all about Google.
