A half century ago George Orwell shocked humans with his vision of a totalitarian state in which the concept of privacy had disappeared. Big Brother was in every home and work place ensuring that individuals would have to be creative in order to carve out private space for their bodies or minds.

It’s just we are going into a different world, uncharted.”
