Garbage Privacy

Losing freedom of choice and privacy through the constant monitoring of data

The concept invites you to decide which path you would take in the face of a difficult choice. People are offered two options: 1) total lack of privacy or control of their own data and the transfer of all data to digital companies in exchange for access to basic public services; 2) data privacy, but total lack of services from the government (education, healthcare, etc.) as well as lack of possibility of being a candidate on the job market. If a person is not a part of the system, they are perceived as individuals without a digital identity, as there is no available data on them. They live on the margins of the society.

    very scary scenario, do you think there could be a third option, some kind of a compromise? how would it look like?

    I completely agree with the comment above. It is a good way of making a point but it would have been good to suggest how al alternative approach could be? If this is the problem, what could be a possible solution?
