Privacy--Violations by Criminals and the Government
My personal bank account just got hacked again. Thanks to Pay Pal and CitiBank, some loser bought himself a laptop with the money from my book sales. I have decided to quit the online banking industry and retreat hermit-like into a privacy kookdom. Enough already. If these small-time criminals can get my money and personal information, just think what the government could do with it if they get it. I have not really been a huge privacy nut until this point, since I didn't fully understand the implications. Now that it has happened to me, I imagine I will be more vocal about such issues. I hope this criminal is enjoying his precious laptop, because if I track him down there will be Texas justice to pay.
