Privacy and Check Cashing

Filed under: Consumer Activism, Security, Terrorism — Jared @ 10:22 am

The Consumerist has a post up on yet another terrifying invasion of our privacy:

BofA Throws Out Customer Who Refuses To Give Thumbprint

Are we really to this point? There were actually comments on this post saying, “If you’re not a terrorist/criminal, you have nothing to fear.” We’re really at that point?

To anyone who is ignorant enough to think this, I ask a few questions (and could probably go on all day):

  • Do you have shades or shutters on your windows? Why?
  • Do you send all of your mail as postcards?
  • Do you tell strangers on the street what you do in the bedroom?

If you don’t see the point these questions are getting at, I feel sorry for you. I should not have to fight for my privacy (except in the sense that we must fight the decay of freedom constantly); you, and everyone else, should have to fight to invade it.
