I eavesdrop. Say what you want about it, but the greatest pastime of living in NYC is the ability to overhear the things people talk about and how they magically think the person sitting next to them on the subway isn’t going to hear.
So I was walking somewhere, I think it was through the park, and I heard a Mother say to her child, who was about three:
“Privacy is a privilege.”
Is privacy a privilege? Or is it a right?
Are there times when we have no expectation of privacy, like when you are in a crowded city and having a conversation that will undoubtedly be heard by at least one other person?
In the modern age, does privacy exist?
Can children expect to have privacy, or does the parent always rule out? is privacy something to be earned with age and responsibility?
Should one be given privacy from their partner?
There are so many ways one can look at this- but when you think privacy, what are the first things that come to mind?
