Ich habe nichts zu verbergen

Das habe ich jetzt schon mehrfach gesehen und finde es so gut das ich es hier einfach wiederverwende. Für die nächste Diskussion mit Menschen für die Privatsphäre gegenüber dem Staat nicht so wichtig ist.

When people say they have nothing to hide, let’s reply:

  • Post your passwords here
  • Write down everybody you hate
  • Tell the world who you voted for
  • List all the videos you watched
  • Medical history.
  • Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.
  • Billing and banking information.
  • Purchase information.
  • Web search history.

And more…

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because ‘your’ judgement and intentions are. And it doesn’t matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I’ve chosen +to share them with. Not the government’s, nor goog’s, nor my ISP’s, but mine. Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in +the past many times to others in other places
