When people say they have nothing to hide, let's reply:
* Post your passwords here
* Write down everybody you hate
* Tell the world who you voted for
* List all the videos you watched
- Medical history.
- Sensitive conversations with employers, children, spouses.

I need privacy. Not because my actions are questionable, but because 'your' judgement and intentions are.
And it doesn't matter whether or not my communications are weighty or frivolous in nature - they are mine and only for those whom I've chosen to share them with. Not the government's, nor goog's, nor my ISP's, but mine.
Also, what is legal where I live today, may not be legal tomorrow and my discussion of it may incriminate my future self. It has happened in the past many times to others in other places.

You don't "have something to hide" when you put blinds on your windows or close the door when you're on the toilet, or wear clothes. Privacy isn't about having something to hide, it's not about keeping secrets. It's about being able to choose what you reveal about yourself, and when, and to who, and the other word we have for that is "dignity". Your inherent dignity, as a human being. Privacy is the agency you have over your dignity.

While #briar remained silence with this fediverse account during the last months due to missing resources, the development of briar and its ecosystem remains active.

Some bad news for folks who are fans of #uMatrix. It's being archived and no longer being developed :
Can't say I didn't see this coming since maintaining a plugin, particularly as an open source project, is often a thankless job with many personal down sides
I hope it can still continue, if not as uMatrix, then as something else. I really don't like to fiddle with uBlock Origin to get the same functionality
