thehorse (899389) writes "I'm the typical /. nut, and get angry whenever there is a news story about governments reducing their citizens' privacy rights. My wife, however, doesn't understand why it's such a big deal that the government could read our emails or bank accounts, track our movements in our cars, capture us on public video cameras, etc. I've tried to explain to her the slippery slope involved, and try to illustrate how losing our personal privacy can turn us into the societies like ones depicted in 1984, or a slew of other sci-fi literature/movies, but she still doesn't get it. And probably because I'm not the best story-teller.

Since my wife isn't a /. geek, and doesn't like sci-fi, can anyone help me explain to her why she should be concerned about government intrusion into her private life?"
