When it comes to online privacy, it’s easy for us to shrug our shoulders and say,”I have nothing to hide”. That’s the wrong mindset to have.
As Edward Snowden said, “Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”
I’ve been guilty of the same thinking before, but the thing is, it really doesn’t matter if you have nothing to hide. Having the ability to hide it is the key.
As the prominent children’s book says, “everyone poops”. Pooping is normal. Everyone does it, daily. That doesn’t mean you go to the bathroom at the office, pull down your pants and do the deed with the door open.
