A lot of you are advocates of freedom and privacy. People aren't born valuing these things, but must learn one way or another. Many people never learned, and younger generations don't miss what they never had. When/how did you learn to value freedom and privacy?


For me it began when when I was 7-10 and came almost exclusively from movies and books, though my librarian had been part of the civil rights movement and told us stories. Freedom was something mentioned often in church, but at that age it didn't really click. The Call of the Wild, White Fang, Little House Books, Roots, Snow Treasure, and The Dairy of Anne Frank all seemed to have had a profound impact on me.
