Because exactly as you observe, it’s almost meaningless for an individual level how much harm, right? Because if I donate or I give up my genomic data, so did all my close relatives in part, right? So, everybody is affected in a sense. Or if there’s a confidential conversation like the Wikileaks diplomatic cables and so on, then it’s definitely not just the CIA. It’s also all the nations that was implicated in the cable.
