Consent assumes two or more equals are engaging. When we distribute aid, we require an exchange of information for the aid. We are bartering.
Is there an alternative? Are we able to uphold our imperative of giving aid to those who need it? Or are we only giving to those who give us their data?
Going digital requires us to have back ups. However, backups tend also to be digital. So perhaps an even better option is to always have alternatives.
