Several years ago, a colleague told me an old war story about how he was asked to build a database of his colleague's notes from therapy sessions, so that their employers could secretly read them. I asked if he knew it was illegal, and he said yes. I asked if he refused the work, he said no. I asked if he told the authorities, he said no. He seemed to think this was all perfectly fine.
I still think about that conversation a lot.
