Anonymity has been a hotly debated topic since anonymous expression has been possible. The debate on the ethical nature of anonymity has been exacerbated within the past twenty years with the rise of the internet and the impacts the internet holds. Many claim that the internet needs to be expunged of anonymity in the name of public safety, however others claim that anonymity is essential for freedom of expression. Every time a news story of harassment or cyberbullying comes to light, the freedom of anonymity online comes under scrutiny. However, the preservation of online anonymity is crucial to the liberty of individuals, allowing them to exercise proper freedom of speech without fear of those in positions of greater power.
Many countries and societies in the World have reaped the benefits of the advancements in the digital age. “However, in some totalitarian regimes, technology has often been perceived as a formidable opponent in the struggle to maintain the status quo. The intended benefits for new technologies are often met with unforeseen consequences” (Leberknight, 2010). According to the 2010 Chinese government white paper – The Internet in China, “The Internet is seen as indispensible for education, poverty alleviation, and the efficient conveyance of government information and services to the public. The development of a vibrant, indigenous Internet and telecommunications sector is also considered critical for China's long-term global economic competitiveness” (SCIO, 2010).
Millennials have been stereotyped on being spoiled and having the world handed to them. But in reality, they’ve worked hard to get where they are.

It’s quite evident that we have become quite dependent on technology due to our overconsumption of it.

It has gotten to the point where bringing technology into your home willingly has the effect of you giving up some of your freedom and right to privacy granted by the Fourth Amendment. It shouldn’t have to be this way. Technology is advancing too fast for the courts to keep up, and revisions regarding technology should be made to the Constitution to align with today’s tech-savvy society. That being said, people also need to be more aware of the technology that they are using in their everyday lives and how it can limit their individual

The generation was able to witness the transition between a typewriter to a personal computer, snail mails to e-mails, telephone calls to Facetime, and more.

Historian Daniel J. Boorstin once said, “Technology is so much fun, but we can drown in our technology. The fog of information can drive out knowledge”. Boorstin believes that technology is fun and is helpful to society, but technology can be overused and can take over our knowledge, which can take over our thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Nowadays most people prefer reading online rather than reading a print book, which has changed our society today in numerous helpful, yet hazardous ways. Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451 interprets what our society will be later on due to the overuse of technology, and the lack of reading print books.

It might not be exactly the same, but our society could one day end up like theirs when it comes to the use of technology. Lastly is Huxley 's idea that “everyone belongs to everyone”.
