The belief that you have nothing to hide is a factual error you may wish to correct.

Noting that the US government itself has no clue how many laws are available to be broken, WIRED looks at why we should be very concerned about surveillance, even if we don’t think we’ve done anything wrong:

If the federal government had access to every email you’ve ever written and every phone call you’ve ever made, it’s almost certain that they could find something you’ve done which violates a provision in the 27,000 pages of federal statues or 10,000 administrative regulations. You probably do have something to hide, you just don’t know it yet.
