Privacy is important. It really doesn’t matter if you aren’t doing anything wrong. Think you’ve got nothing to hide? Well what about your online banking password – don’t you want to hide that from thieves? And perhaps you should take your curtains down too, so we can all watch you in the shower. The idea that internet privacy is about hiding things you are doing wrong is a faulty premise. Please take a moment to look at some of the best arguments why privacy matters and then learn how to do something to protect yours:
“If one would give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest man, I would find something in them to have him hanged” – Cardinal Richelieu
People do not need to have “something to hide” in order to hide “something”. What is relevant is not what is hidden, rather the experience that there is a intimate area, which could be hidden, whose access could be restricted. Psychologically speaking, we become individuals through the discovery that we could hide something to others – Wikipedia on Emilio Mordini
