Honestly I think this is my new favourite way to explain why I value privacy. It's concise, easily understandable, and emphasises how it's important even if it doesn't directly affect someone personally.

Some of the more conventional arguments are so easy to brush aside, because they're not about the actual problem.

"I don't mind if strangers look at me going to the bathroom without me knowing."

"A Facebook ad doesn't influence me."

"You can block ads."
