My buzzword counter variable overflowed mid-way through the introductory
paragraph. Could you tell us what these people are actually doing, in
real words?


"Privacy has to be viewed in the context of relative power. For example,
the government has a lot more power than the people. So privacy for
the government increases their power and increases the power imbalance
between government and the people; it decreases liberty. Forced openness
in government – open government laws, Freedom of Information Act
filings, the recording of police officers and other government officials,
WikiLeaks – reduces the power imbalance between government and the
people, and increases liberty."
