Reminds me of a great quote I recently wrote down from a West Wing Season 1 Episode: “The 20s and 30s it was the role of government, 50s and 60s it was civil rights, the next two decades are going to be privacy. I’m talking about the internet, I’m talking about cell phones, I’m talking about who’s gay and who’s not. And moreover, in a country born of the will to be free what could me more fundamental than this.” - Aaron Sorkin spoken by Sam Seaborn in the West Wing Season 1 Episode 9 aired in 1999
