Many of you know that I’m writing a book. I’ve been reaching out some of you through DMs, to test some ideas for the book.
One of the first things you do when you start a project (a book or whatever) is to answer the question of: What is it about?
I thought the book was about Privacy Inequality, a juicy term I started to use a while ago. But as I started to dive deep and see the whole picture of today’s landscape I noticed that what’s going on is that, we’re living a global transition towards modern dictatorships, where liberal democracy will have to reinvent itself–it’s not suitable for today’s standards.
Now, I’m talking with a lot of people about this, and I might be wrong. And that’s the price you pay–I could wait until I release the book to see people’s reactions. But I believe it’s more healthy to discuss these topics in the open and get early feedback.
I’ve put together an article with my thoughts. I could attempt to sum it up here but I think I’d miss some critical points.
The only thing you won’t find in that article is a related idea (I’m working on it now) about why privacy is the key to preserve our freedom. (Heads-up: I’m biased with my strong pro-privacy worldview)
I hope you find this conversation useful, and that you contribute with your thoughts here.
