We should all have something to hide
We don’t often repeat the cliche that if someone has nothing to hide then they shouldn’t worry but we should. Going to the heart of what our society values and fears we seem to have become indifferent to the freedoms taken away from so many in the name of safety, the monitoring and tracking that the government conducts and the information we volunteer for convenience and access which the corporations sell among themselves are so accepted now that it has degraded our sense of liberty. We are bound to the habit of telling others what prudence dictates should be secrets. How many people use common sense when asking questions or when answering? Why do we need to know? Why do we suspect those who aren’t like us? We should all have something to hide because we should all be different, even if only by a small degree.
