Even by libertarians, and even here at the FSP, I've had some pooh-pooh my interest in privacy.  I found this article a wonderful support of my position.  Privacy *is* valuable, even when you don't have something to hide.  (We have security books by this gentleman.  They're a good read too.)

I'm not all that concerned about being off the information grid, though I could certainly go that way.  However, I feel that my privacy is mine and should be mine to give away.  There are all sorts of little inroads into privacy.  I've had several people say things to me like "well, they know everything anyway".  This sort of reminds me of my mother sanctioning Clinton's lying about Monica.  My mother's comment at the time was, referring to politicians in general "well they *all* lie".  (Yes, she was a democrat, god rest her soul.)  I didn't find that any excuse for tolerating bad behavior by our public officials and I find "they know everything anyway" no reason to complacently go along with more inroads and more sharing of my private information.  Just because it's done doesn't mean it's right.  I'm against a national id card.  I'd like my medical insurance to be straight fee for service again.  I dislike store frequent buyer cards, but that's a *choice*.  etc.
