You May Have ‘Nothing to Hide’ But You Still Have Something to Fear

I cannot understand how anyone in their right mind would want ‘Big Brother’ in the sky watching and scrutinizing their every move. I know, I know, there will be the purely ignorant who will counter with “Well, if you’re not doing anything illegal you shouldn’t worry about it”. Ignorant response, yes, but some people actually believe that. When you say, “I have nothing to hide”, what you are saying is that you do not care about the right to privacy.

“Too many wrongly characterize the debate as ‘security versus privacy.’ The real choice is liberty versus control.” — Bruce Schneier, computer security expert and cryptographer.

“Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.” — Edward Snowden

Bottom line: we cannot allow this to happen. Once we do, there is no going back. The State will then have complete control over all the subjects on earth and if a rogue government takes over (as it has in many places throughout history), Orwell’s ‘1984’ is truly here. Gates seems to want this — another privileged oligarch who wants to control everyone else.

If you can only remember one thing, remember this: You May Have ‘Nothing to Hide’ But You Still Have Something to Fear . . .

Big Brother Will Be Watching You

About JHrusky

I was raised in a two-parent functional home and have worked hard the majority of my life. I started my first business at the age of 12 mowing lawns in my neighborhood. At age 14, I worked summers as a bricklayer's laborer and weekends as a machine shop janitor. I have come to enjoy politics but have grave concerns for our country and how it is changing and going deeper and deeper into debt. I also worry about people who willfully want to believe every sound bite their party puts out instead of fact-checking for the truth. Politics has become a very vicious 'game' in which there are virtually no rules and no limits anymore. It's time to set the record straight pertaining to ALL sides of the aisle. Thus, NewsWhores was born. Come watch us grow.
