    I think that privacy as we think of it is going to go the way of the dinosaurs.

I think you are dead wrong. Privacy is a dead concept. There are cameras everywhere and every bit of info about your life, even stuff you don't know exists, is in a database that is being shared. Your hacked data is being sold due to security breaches at companies you have NEVER interacted with (Equifax is just one example).

And on top of that, the young people I interact with have no concept of a private life. EVERYTHING they do is under public scrutiny. By the time these people get into a position to make and enforce laws, I'll be dead. Yet I still care about this issue. Privacy is a vital human right. It is needed for a free society to exist. It is needed for a representative democracy to exist. Privacy is a critical core need for a sane, healthy, human mind.

And this critical component of who we are was taken from us to sell advertising, starting in the 1950's.
