on the subject of personal privacy: is there really good reason to be concerned? Is there any point in keeping personal information private anymore?

I have always been told by my parents growing up that you should destroy letters with your address on, avoid giving out personal information and I have always tried to maintain a healthy level of paranoia. More and more though, events are testing this point of view. So in the modern world, how can I explain why it is that I am paranoid, and am I justified to be that way?
This includes such issues as identity cards, security cameras, etc. The usual 1984 inspired stuff.
