I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because your judgement and intentions are.
One thing I often reply to the "I've got nothing to hide" crowd is that *you* don't get to choose what will be used against you. Think insurance or visa application for example.
As in the famous (but disputed) quote by Richelieu : "If you give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him."
@whilelm That is quite the best description of the issues behind the attacks on the right to privacy I have ever seen. Thank you.
@whilelm This is exactly the way I think about this; however, you managed to say it in a much more concise way. :D
If you're a good person you'd still have things to hide from bad people, that's why you need privacy.
