Does anyone know a good answer to the question: "Why are you worried if you don't have anything to hide?" or refutation to that type of thinking?
My wife and I were bumping into this repeatedly on Facebook yesterday among various knuckle-dragging types while discussing the NSA spying stories and we found ourselves sputtering from time to time because we could not find the right wording.
I would say something like "Civil liberties and due process are not about who THEY are. They are about who WE are." And I like that line, but I think for this specific question there's bound to be a more effective rejoinder.
Thanks in advance. Will respond to all good faith substantive comments, as time permits.
