Where does this belief come from?
Most of the people asking the questions and protesting seem to be young people.

But the generation under me.... clueless. lol
Just personal observations, your mileage may vary.

I swear, the delta between growing up in the 90s vs. the 00s probably isn't even fathomable by older (30+ vs. 20'ish or under, I mean) adults like myself (we probably can't imagine the mindset from maturing in the 00s vs. the 90s).
My point is that we shouldn't blame the youth entirely (or arguably even at all) for their apparent lack of concern regarding these issues. It's all they know. Some serious re-education should be in order, and the responsibility falls on older people who can see how things have changed/understand that there are dangers when privacy/misc. freedoms here and there start to fly out the window.
