Many people, myself included, value privacy for its' own sake.

If "the government" (including in this specific case ATO, Centrelink, AFP, state police forces, the Judiciary, et al) can monitor their citizen's detailed health history, then we're a short step from the Chinese Social Credit system where they know all that and much more, like Google.

Knowledge is Power, as the Power Coaching College used to say.  And when the government knows too much it will almost inevitably begin to control.  Soon we'd find an Australian Social Credit system where the government begins to actively control what you can think and do.

Do you want that?
