Or badly designed individuals. It only takes less than a handful of people
to make a society. If Joe Lumberjack decides he doesn't want his circle of
buddies to know he crossdresses, what then? What academic discussion of
transparency/privacy do we apply to a practical situation?
I don't want everyone to know every detail of my life, or even some of the
details, even mundane things such as the color socks I wear. An
anthropomorphic weakness? Maybe so. But as of this moment, I still have no
urge to be a homogenized member of a group mind.
