Read Ess Ch. 2, pp. 59 - 89.
What are your experiences of the "privacy paradox" as described in this section of the chapter?
Do you trust the U.S. government to protect your privacy adequately? What evidence can you give that suggests that this trust is warranted or not (you will find some ideas in the reading)?
What are your views on whether or not the current regulations in the U.S. are adequate or not for protecting what you take to be your rights to privacy and to private life? Should there be stronger protections of anonymity and privacy, even at the cost of ease of use and convenience? And how could stronger or weaker protections impact journalism, social media management, public relations and other professions in communication?
