Many people may question, or even have pause as to why the fuss for personal privacy. If you have similar questions, then you probably are not aware of your eroding freedoms, and quite honestly you are probably part of the problem and not the solution.
If you cop the attitude "I have nothing to hide", you are unfortunately part of this group. You have been duped into believing that your life should be an open book.
This series is not meant to convince you of any present and future threats. This series of posts is for those interested in taking some self directed action. As a prelude to this series, listed here are a few of the reasons why you may want to consider effecting a plan of action for protecting your privacy.
