Selling your privacy, buying theirs

I found this really painful: rich people using their influence to keep their privacy when they made their riches on buying and selling other people's privacy. The irony is bitter. I realize that when you're rich the rules really are different (for good and bad), but it's hard to escape how hipocritical it is. That privacy is only important if and only if one has money is a dangerous preceedent and a very slippery slope.
