Again, what are you so scared of the government seeing, babe? You're using a slippery slope fallacy. The government seeing the illegal porn you clearly possess since you're so scared of your privacy being violated is not comparable to totalitarianism.?

[...]

Again, you simply don't have privacy, and that's a good thing. You don't need it, you're hiding something. Your passwords aren't magically stored in some database, m8. Stop crying and just accept the future.?

[...]

Your complaints are that the government will know about all the illegal porn you clearly possess and that your passwords will be vulnerable to hackers due to a keylogger you can turn off. You're retarded.?

Except we have all the historic precedents we need. Giving tools to a government that can descend into authoritarianism at any time is not a good idea, because that makes resisting it once it is in place that much harder.

you simply don't have privacy, and that's a good thing. You don't need it, you're hiding something.


What I am hiding is my political opinions and sexual practices of choice. And yes, we have privacy: I am not making the rounds of the neighbourhood screaming at the top of my lungs who I voted for, which god I pray too (I leave that to theists.) and in which kinks my wife and I like to engage.
I am not on Twitter, not on Facebook, not on any social network except for Google+ because I have a gmail account and everything is set to private.

One can want privacy even if one is not stocking the computer full with illegal stuff.

When fascists have taken over, they have often gone after socialists, and I kinda like being alive.

What's bad with having privacy? Can we put a camera in this dolts bathroom? S/he doesn't seem to want privacy anyway...

Again, what's with the redundant question mark at the end of idiotic posts?

Spooky Skeletons thinks 1984 is a utopia?

Spooky, you do realize, I hope, that you just implicitly gave everyone (as in everyone!) permission to spy on you? Governments, NGOs, hackers and assorted fellow citizens included?

Ehh, I`m mostly ok with full transparency but not in a world which punishes you for victimless crimes and their idologies. First though, let the gov prove to me that it won`t do anything out of bounds and forfeit most of it`s policing power like over substances(lets make an exception here for radioactive materials of course). Then I`m cool with it, basically I don`t give a shitsky who watches me and when(you get this mindset living in a post-soviet country) as long as they are not allowed to fuck with your life because of it.

1984 WAS NOT AN INSTRUCTION MANUAL.

I'm with Skide. Hell, I'm an exhibitionist; if anyone wants to watch me, I'd enjoy it. ;)

Pics of Bettie Page on my HD. GCHQ share their data intercepts with the FBI.



What have you got on your HD, o OP...?!

Just because I have "nothing to hide" does not mean that it is anyone else's business. Do you like it when people look over your shoulder, when someone goes through your stuff without your consent? No? Same thing when it comes to your computer. What is wrong with you that you cannot comprehend a concept as self-evident as privacy?

Setting aside that you don't know how a keylogger works, this is the old anti-privacy argument of "Well, if you've got nothing to hide, then you should be okay with this" rearing its ugly head again. What will it take for this particular line of reasoning to die?

Whether or not one has something to hide is irrelevant to their desire for privacy. I wonder how many of these sorts that 'have nothing to hide' would be comfortable with their everything on display? When innocent comments or associations get documented and turned against you...

2001-2008: Why do you care? You only need to worry if you're hiding something.

2008-2016: The government needs to stop sticking it's nose into our private business!

2017-?: Why do you care? You only need to worry if you're hiding something.


Sigh...

It is not illegal porn that I don't want viewed. I have legal porn that I want safe. My wife and I enjoy sending pictures of oursrlves to each other, but that should remain private. It is nobody's business but our own

I don't download illegal porn, but I still don't want the government looking through my hard drive. There's something in the 4th Amendment which is supposed to give us privacy from unreasonable searches.
