Here’s a cartoon about the nothing-to-hide argument. One of the most common arguments of those unconcerned about government surveillance or privacy invasions is “I’ve got nothing to hide.”
I wrote a book addressing this argument and other faulty arguments made in the debate about privacy versus security. Recently, I posted the full text of my book, NOTHING TO HIDE: THE FALSE TRADEOFF BETWEEN PRIVACY AND SECURITY (Yale University Press 2011) on SSRN for free.
