Funny responses to the "nothing to hide" argument

Via Why, Even If You Have Nothing To Hide, Government Surveillance Threatens Your Freedom > University Law School Professor Daniel J. Solove's essay:

  • Do you have curtains?
  • Can I see your credit card bills for the last year?
  • I don't need to justify my position. You need to justify yours. Come back with a warrant.
  • I don't have anything to hide. But I don't have anything I feel like showing you, either.
  • If you have nothing to hide, then you don't have a life.
  • It's not about having anything to hide, it's about things not being anyone else's business.
  • Bottom line, Joe Stalin would have loved it. Why should anyone have to say more?
