Would Abolishing Privacy Be Beneficial?
Individuals should be free to carry out actions that are in their self interest without judgement.
Someone may have access to all of someone's personal info at all times, but they'll never be able to judge the big picture perspective as well as someone who lives in the judged shoes. Living in this distorted world would be harmful to all of us.
Current PC thinking produces shame and punishment often meaning public figures are forced out of their positions due to private comments. The database would make this worse; overriding the rule of law as it affords popular decree the power to take away people's rights and protections.
The database does not restrict people from carrying out selfish actions, only allows us to judge people for being overly selfish.
Even if they should be allowed to carry out these actions, they should be discouraged as much as possible. Society benefits when people do not take selfish actions.
People should not be allowed to do wrong things. It is incoherent to hold both, "This action is demonstrably wrong," and "People should be permitted to do this action without consequence."
