{ Government, Google, Banks, Telcos }: Well if you have nothing to hide you wouldn't mind if I check all your data?

Me: Having nothing to hide does not mean having something to share. I'm doing nothing illegal. But I hide it anyway. That's called privacy.

People working for the government (Police, Politician) should have no privacy AT ALL while on duty. Citizens should have a right to privacy.

The idea that if "I do nothing wrong, I won't mind being watched" assumes that the government is full of good people that will not abuse their power, ever. Anything taken out of context can appear wrong. Can you assure me that nobody with power will never watch me for their own profit? No business competitor? No mad ex wife? No policemen trying to cover its own mistakes? You will never be at the wrong place at the wrong time? Can you assure me that something will never be made illegal? If sex outside wedlock is made illegal, would you still be happy to have all that footage of you raping these thai prostitutes?

Every information about a citizen should be his own property. Sadly, in our world, major corporations and government are above the law.

Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean that they're not out to get you.
