@thegibson I'm going to hand-wave a bit and say that privacy is a key component of agency. If anyone has issues with that, hit me with a question and I'll try explaining in more depth.
There are also notions of _vigilance_ and _alertness_, and of _harassment_, "to vex by repeated attacks"
Simply being under observation, _especially_ by a potentially threatening adversary, is a form of harassment and intimidation.
There's Bentham's Panopticon, a literal prison.
@dredmorbius I have not yet disagreed with any of your assertions. Agency does require privacy.
