  I don't think that Karl is being paid, but is misguided. His position
that privacy is absolute and be A "broken" is after there has been a
ruling of guilt.
  Of course, he no longer flies in planes, or has a drivers license, or a
credit card, or has a bank account, or owns property, buys things at
stores which inspects receipts or bags, or walks in the street with his
face uncovered because to do that, he must sacrifice some level of
privacy for each of those activities.
