Not all Privacy is equal

I'm not sure why I enjoy talking so much about Privacy issues. My first post on this blog was on Privacy. I guess it's because I hold views that are not widely accepted, although I find arguments in support of them. It's a great soap-box topic. The Beckner-Posner Blog has a posted on the different kinds of privacy that concern us, and proposes reasoning behind assigning value to each of these. Rather than employing the word, privacy, as a war cry, as we often do, we ought to consider the it's implications relative to other values. Richard Posner does well in breaking down the this value.
