... the specious claim that "I have nothing to hide." The fact that the attendees decided to put clothes on before going to the conference that morning
I'll stand by my claim that I have nothing to hide. The only reason I put on clothes, aside from warmth, is out of consideration for others.
But even to the extent that I do value privacy, I feel oppressed enough by crime that I would give up more privacy than I already have if it means the criminals also give it up and are thereby less able to victimize me. And I believe it usually does.
If, for example, there were two airports - one with full body scanning, rifling through bags, and checking of databases and one without - I would fly out of the former.
