A more honest digital policy is overdue

privacy was a luxury of the Healthy. But you had to bring your data to give away. This is Calvin Grieder, President of the fragrance group, Givaudan said at a meeting in Bern in October 2018. He received no contradiction. Of the two Federal councils, had been invited to the Meeting. This is evident from the minutes of the meeting published by this newspaper yesterday.

The disruptive power of the digitization was sung often. Rarely, but it manifested itself in Switzerland so drastically: In the Federal Constitution, the basic right to privacy in the front, in article 13, even before the faith and freedom of conscience. Under future euphoric advisers to the state government sees this as, apparently, only a waiver-resistant accessory.

The Advisory Board of "Digital Transformation" is a model for the error of the Federal Council in the broad field of digitization. When they called the panel of 2017, stated Doris Leuthard and Johann Schneider-Ammann, they wanted to boost the digital dialogue with business, science and society. After five sessions: data protection, patients ' rights defenders, employees and other representatives of civil society organisations were allowed to present their concerns about specific effects of digitization. The group leaders, professors and administration representatives, hand-picked by Leuthard and Schneider-Ammann, should not be disturbed, if you introduced them to each other about the unique opportunities in the now.

Even the Federal Council in relation to the digitisation of mainly true if and only if in the autumn on the occasion of the so-called digital tags of several of its members into the country swarming with auto show moderate enthusiasm to try out a few new products. Oh, a drone ballet, a Virtual-Reality glasses, robots! Strangely phlegmatic responds the government, meanwhile, when it comes to the solution of technology-driven problems, such as illegal Download or Uberisierung of the working conditions. Who treated digitizing as superficial, don't be surprised if the citizens trust the authorities to secure the introduction of E-Voting or the electronic Patient record with skepticism meet.

The double-resignation of Doris Leuthard and Johann Schneider-Ammann offers to the Federal Council now, after all, the Chance of a more open and more honest policy to enforce. Advisory bodies, the hatch, to the exclusion of the Public plans, in the data of the citizens, have no place in it.
