This is the same as the argument "if you don't have anything to hide, you don't have anything to fear."

What I fear today I don't necessarily need to hide.

What I don't hide today I won't necessarily not fear about tomorrow.

I have nothing to hide and plenty to fear. Any comments I make today are ok today and not ok tomorrow. Everything I say and do can be be used against me later. My life is private, I don't want to have to be careful with my life to ensure that what I say and do today may be used by the state tomorrow.

It's better for me to keep a low profile now so there is no trail later. I prefer cash because I don't want the state looking through my purchase history, I don't want to make the banks a profit because it's easier to pay with credit. When I use my credit card, it also costs me interest if I can't pay my balance.

Cash equals sovereignty, credit equals slavery.

This right here. They charge you for the privilege of credit/debit in the form of higher price of goods AND finance charges if you don't pay in full at the end of the month.

It truly is a devious system only a Jew could love

Yeah, never buy alcohol or tobacco with cards.

"if you don't have anything to hide, you don't have anything to fear."

Ask them to show you their internet bookmarks.

Not the bookmarks...their browser(s) history.

Then you bring about the argument: "if you need to hide something it's likely illegal".

I keep plenty of things to myself because I don't have a need to share my thoughts and activities with the world. I also don't share everything with my own family. I'm frankly perplexed why so many people share so much about their private lives with complete strangers.
