Privacy & the "having nothing / something to hide" arguement. quote 1: Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, "I don't really worry of privacy because I don't have anything to hide." I always say the same thing to them. I get out a pen, I write down my email address. I say, "Here's my email address. What I want you to do when you get home is email me the passwords to all of your email accounts, not just the nice, respectable work one in your name, but all of them, because I want to be able to just troll through what it is you're doing online, read what I want to read and publish whatever I find interesting. After all, if you're not a bad person, if you're doing nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide." Not a single person has taken me up on that offer. --Glenn Greenwald in Why privacy matters - TED Talk quote 2: Ultimately, saying that you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different from saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. Or that you don't care about freedom of the press because you don't like to read. Or that you don't care about freedom of religion because you don't believe in God. Or that you don't care about the freedom to peacably assemble because you're a lazy, antisocial agoraphobe. --Edward Snowden in Permanent Record

https://cntechpost.com/2021/02/23/china-has-opened-718000-5g-base-stations-accounting-for-70-of-worlds-total/ Why would china roll out 718,000 stations if they know the radiation will make the population sick or sick enough they die?! a sick population works less. china already has a declining population trend, thats hardly part of a master plan to expand an world empire nor support it ?! does that suggest the perceived threat of 5G is rooted in paranoia and theory, because once you can turn populations off 5G this damages china's gdp supporting a US-China trade war. i dont know what other conspiracy explains how 5G can work in china and not in the US and europe, its their equipment the same equipment probably?! it doesnt stop there, china are developing and testing 6G..
