What people do in the privacy of their own home is their business and they have a right to expect a certain amount of privacy. However, if you do not want to get “caught” doing anything that can be considered risqué, don’t do it in the first place. Hollywood stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande, and Victoria Justice should be upset that someone hacked their computers and shared nude pictures of them on the Internet. However, if they didn’t store the nude photos in the first place, no one would have been able to get them.
What they do for jollies is their own business but I have a hard time feeling bad for anyone who keeps nude photos of themselves. Why take and then keep the pictures in the first place? Isn’t admiring oneself in the mirror after a shower enough that they need to keep a document of their physiques? I do not get it but, then again, there is the other side of midnight I know nothing about. Being a prude has its plusses and minuses.
Stars have the right to privacy but they seek fame and work hard at maintaining it throughout their careers. It’s a life they sought and chose but too many of them want their fame and privacy too. It does not work that way and they need to understand that small detail. Once you are in the public eye, you need to understand your privacy is a thing of the past. If you want privacy, do not aspire to be famous.
The same goes for politicians who crave your vote but do not want to be bothered by their constituents when issues arise. They forget their job is to represent the people in their district. That means they should spend most of their time talking and listening to the citizens of their district, not schmoozing with special interests.
If politicians spent more time with the people and less time with the special interests they will learn the two are dichotomous in a mutually exclusive manner. It’s naïve to think politicians act for the greater good of the people versus themselves but why can’t we have such a naïve notion? I guess I should read the concept in my first paragraph over again. I need a realistic view. If I want to avoid disappointment from my political leaders I should not expect them to care about anyone but themselves.
