Privacy is dead , atleast in the EU:
New rules allow 3rd parties to ask for permission to view my transactions and how many funds are on my accounts.
They have to ask the consumer for persmission but we all know big companies don't really care about rules , if they break it they got legal teams to solve it.
What i got in my bank account is my business , everything has been legally obtained.

Except in our 1984 nightmare we have a right wing government.
"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power." Benito Mussolini
Corporations ARE the government.
The way they keep tabs on everyone to an extent is they collect all the data they can from various sources on everybody, then "mine" the data. So whether you're a "person of interest" or not, your data is in the database and is being "mined", hence that's a form of keeping tabs on us. Google (etc) mines the data for the purpose of selling advertising and security agencies monitor the data for reasons like homeland security.

True, but 'they' don't care about ordinary people, they can't keep tabs on everyone unless they're interested in them for some inaudible reasoning.

Privacy and/or anonymity regarding the everyday person has been extinct for quite some time.
Cant lose what we did not already have.
