another project WORLDVIEW worldview theme         copyright 2021              Home         


I value privately asserting personal autonomy, perhaps flaunting societal norms, and secluding myself-- hiding behind walls, hiding information about myself from the scrutiny of others or their technology-based tools / databases. I seek to avoid disturbance (serenity compromise), embarrassment (confidentiality compromise), injury (security compromise) and /or bodily integrity compromise by others (including corporations seeking profit or governments failing to respect my body.) I see the extent I’m able to do this depends on socioeconomic factors and my relative power / powerlessness.
