Individualists, communitarians, and technological determinists agree that privacy's benefits accrue to individuals, and that its costs (in terms of less security or efficiency) fall on society. As such, it is the individual's choice to give privacy away. However, privacy does benefit wider society in important respects, and so this consensus is flawed.
