Privacy as a Personal Requirement

In a previous post, I spoke about the nature of the term “right” and why it isn’t the appropriate word for conveying our freedoms and responsibilities we innately believe others should respect. In this post, I continue with that in mind, arguing in favor of privacy but without following the misguided cultural trend of using the word “right”. I begin by listing three types of reasons for privacy, one per section, and conclude with an argument based on my aforementioned article.

Table of Contents

  1. The Religious Reason – Privacy Stemming from Being a Gift
  2. The Social Reason – Society and Privacy
  3. The Personality Reason – Psychological Requirement
  4. The Right, or Loving, Response – Endowing Privacy

Each section is rather short and should serve to stimulate ideas rather than be a comprehensive proof of the need for privacy.

“Right” is not the right idea

An analogy I often use to demonstrate the term “rhetoric” is to say “ice cubes are cool, therefore ice cubes are awesome”. What is going on here is the alteration of an idea based on the abstracting of an original idea. Certainly ice cubes can be awesome, and the appreciation of ice cubes being cool makes them awesome (subjectively speaking), but the coolness alone does not make the ice cube awesome. Yet this change in an idea often goes unnoticed when the word attempts to describe a more complex framework. In short, we may find ourselves applying rhetoric without even realizing it. The word we are actually searching for may be more limited in scope and definition but be supported by reality. Let us start with an analogy.

Image Relocation

I received an email today from Imageshack, telling me to switch to premium membership or they would dump me. So long, free image service! Image shack was very easy to use, and the price per month is only $2, so I can’t complain about that. However, I don’t want to pay for it. I pray WordPress doesn’t become a for-pay service (although it looks like they can sustain it with the services they do offer).

I don’t like Photobucket, and I’m not sure of whether or not it will become a for-pay service either.

But the biggest problem with relocating is this: there are 90 images. Some of them I can simply ignore in the move and point to links. But the ones I decide to keep will end up in my blog storage.

In short, if some image links are broken, it’s not my fault, but please inform me of them.

EDIT

I was going over images tonight and I realized they are all stored on WordPress. This must be a new backup feature because usually the links break. I guess WordPress thought it was a good idea to preserve things this time. :) … But I may back up my images anyways.

Edit: Nope. All gone. Guess I just have to upload everything again. Sorry about the broken links.

On Viewing People

As a young child growing up, the world is new, and that’s probably the closest mots people will ever be to seeing things how they truly are in an objective – as opposed to subjective – sense. That is not to say they will not view things in a subjective sense, only that this is as close as they will be to both the objective perspective and to the unbiased perspective. I refer specifically to the earliest of ages, before one has enough experience to have an opinion.

How Julia transforms work

Last night, I quickly put together a video about how Julia transforms work in iterated function series flames. By “Julia”, I mean julian, juliaq, julia3D, julia3Dz, etc. – The transforms in JWildfire labeled with “julia” (except salamander and one other, I think). I know Apophysis has many of these as well.
