Rape vs. Reports Thereof

Megan McArdle has a substantial piece entitled: How Many Rape Reports Are False?

'The number of false accusations is what statisticians call a “dark number” -- that is, there is a true number, but it is unknown, and perhaps unknowable.'

I thought of saying that in the future, when every aspect of your life is recorded, this won't be such a problem.

But I have my doubts that we are actually going to live in that future.

The future may not be as advertised.
Privacy may still, in fact, be prized.
