Ancilla Tilia says that privacy is about knowledge, and knowledge is power. Do we understand that by giving our information away now, we are giving it to companies that might not exist yet and to governments that are not yet elected?

Ancilla thinks that we are ceasing to care about our privacy and with that, we are losing our freedom. Little by little, our freedoms are taken away. With every cashless payment we make, our purchase is analysed and is not anonymous anymore. With public transportation cards, our every ride is monitored. With fingerprint access to our devices, we could be giving away a part of our identity.
