Bloomberg: Government Taking Away Citizens' Privacy Inevitable New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg during his weekly WOR radio program. “We’re just going into a different world, uncharted. Like it or not, what people can do – or governments can do – is different and you can to some extent control [it], but you can’t keep the tides from coming in. We’re going to have more visibility and less privacy. I don’t see how you stop that. It’s not a question whether I think it’s good or bad, I just don’t see how you can stop that because we’re going to have them.” “Everybody wants their privacy but I don’t know how you’re going to maintain it"
