US Border Patrol agents are now turning people away from the border based on the contents of those people's private Facebook chat messages. Yeah. Border Patrol agents can read your private social network messages.

Flight delayed by an hour due to maintenance on the SFO instrument landing system. Fun.

If England had access to a fraction of the kind of information that the US military does, they would have easily caught and executed Paul Revere well before war broke out. It's likely there would be no United States today.

As we come to terms with the idea that our military is watching and recording everything we do, many people will take a mental shortcut. They will punt on the issue entirely, saying "if you have nothing to hide, what do you have to fear?".

Privacy is not about hiding something wrong. People do not need privacy because they are bad.

Privacy is about maintaining your dignity. Privacy is a fundamental aspect of freedom. Privacy is about not being forced to give up your thoughts, your relationships, and your ideas to people who can use them against you. To people who will judge you without cause. Your thoughts are yours alone. What you choose to read and say is for you to decide. Where you choose to travel, who you choose to meet, and why you choose to do it is your business alone. Not mine. Not the military. Not the government. Not a corporation. Nobody but you.

When I was a kid I thought we had a constitution and bill of rights that mattered.  Now I find that's not so true.

Copied from wikiquotes:
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

This was written by Franklin, within quotation marks but is generally accepted as his original thought, sometime shortly before February 17, 1775 as part of his notes for a proposition at the Pennsylvania Assembly, as published in Memoirs of the life and writings of Benjamin Franklin (1818).

A variant of this was published as:
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

This was used as a motto on the title page of An Historical Review of the Constitution and Government of Pennsylvania. (1759); the book was published by Franklin; its author was Richard Jackson, but Franklin did claim responsibility for some small excerpts that were used in it.
