Such people may regard themselves as having a responsibility to help society regulate private lives, and so to fulfill that responsibility they must have the right to know about people's private lives. Any refusal to cooperate in revealing private behavior is regarded as anti-social. Other people, on the other hand, regard private behavior as a private matter; with society having no right to intrude so long as the behavior is private---not threatening other people's rights. Those who respect privacy deny that anybody has a right to know about private behavior, and regard it as proper to respond to probing with misleading responses which deflect inquiries and/or lead the prober to believe that the private behavior is not threatening the conventional values of the prober. The prober may be seeking objective evidence about objective private behavior---even though the essence of the focus of their concern is non-objective. Openness about the objective aspects of the private behavior is not likely to give the prober a true impression about the significance of the private behavior. Not even openness about the subjective aspects of the private behavior will give the prober a true impression of the significance of the private behavior. Such probers by their nature cannot gain a true impression of the significance of the private behavior. The most helpful thing which can be done for them is to lead them to feel at ease about private behavior, even though that may involve them coming to believe that certain objective behavior does, or does not, characterize the private behavior. The prober should be at ease about private behavior, and needs help in becoming at ease. Probers into private behavior tend to play on feelings of guilt about private behavior. It is not helpful to accept their offerings of guilt, for imposed guilt is not helpful. To accept their offerings of guilt is to surrender one's right to privacy, and so to surrender the opportunity to escape from collusions via private examination of them. Privacy is essential to escaping from the evil of collusions. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
