The main thesis of the article is that informational privacy slows down the progress in many areas of science and social development. Current tendencies to open government lead us to construct a fully transparent society. And we should be ready to organize our public and private life in the absence of the informational privacy, including the most sensible areas. This transformation will influence almost every sphere of our social life. Increasing the level of tolerance, more security for private businesses, cost savings for states and individuals, the new wave in the development of the electronic services from governments and corporations, more incentives for law-changing process, the next level of social trust are the core of the transparent society after the abolition of the right to the informational privacy. But there are many more consequences that require further detailed study and research.
