Peggy Noonan of the Wall Street Journal bemoans the state of our private affairs and how rapidly we are losing a notion of privacy in our culture. Notions such as seclusion, freedom from interference or intrusion, privacy, discretion and concealment no longer carry the weight or meaning we once thought they did.
The Eyes Have It is Noonan’s take on the post-privacy era and what it means to us as Americans. How do we define the American spirit when there is no place to hide?
Technology is wondrous but Noonan reminds us how it restrains, constricts and diminishes freedom.
