Identity, Privacy, And Safety

What is the relationship between identity and privacy? Do people living in individualistic societies value privacy more?

Why is that the feeling after a minor car accident is very different than the feeling after a minor car break-in?  And, how is privacy related to safety? 


Can a society function without illusions?

It is easier to imagine things that don't exist than to reimagine what exists.
