Incidents of Privacy in Yesjwenre Province
BY RAMELA WEIL
In order to most effectively introduce a discussion of privacy-response/-reduction programs, we must first recognize that, in Yesjwenre Province, privacy is officially defined as “external (physical)/internal (psychological) greed marked by a hesitancy / unwillingness to send/receive observation.” According to experts, desire for privacy results in (1) conspicuous tension when thwarted, or (2) solitude when fulfilled. The latter (ie, solitude) is preferable because overtly recognizable tension causes repercussions / replications among the population that may lead to actions against the Province. Solitude, however, results in (1) confidentiality/secrets that detract from the mission of the Yesjwenre Province Information Storehouse, and (2) action/creation that the Province deems unnecessary for its population’s fulfillment. Because the Province’s Observation Network benefits from maximum participation, individual dominion over shadowy memories/desires of youth, as well as unobserved solitary pursuits, are considered selfish. Ultimately, privacy and its related concerns do not fulfill the confluential needs of the Province.
Response arenas, surveillance flooding, and specialized forces of privacy-response technicians account for the bulk of the costs discussed below. Although measuring the total costs of these incidents is not as easy as counting victims one-by-one, valid enumerations are essential for at least two reasons: (1) such estimates assist in determining the efficacy of privacy-response /-reduction programs; and (2) estimates for the financial burden that privacy imposes may help guide response/reduction policies in the future.
