This week an American NSA analyst left America to Hong Kong in order to expose the US government’s seemingly unlimited access to citizen’s phone calls, emails, and other communications.
A student commented that if we are not terrorists and are not doing anything bad, then what do we have to hide?
Perhaps it is unavoidable that the government will have access to everything and we will have no privacy. Is privacy important? Why? What would be so bad if we lost privacy?
i know why privacy is important and i assumed that everyone felt the same, but i guess, not everyone does.
If you had to choose between security and privacy, which would you choose? How much of one would you sacrifice for how much of the other?
