The brilliant Neil deGrasse Tyson interviews NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden in this piece from Tyson's series "StarTalk Radio." Snowden on the right to privacy:

"You don't have to justify why you need your rights. That's not how they work... Saying that 'I don't care about the right to privacy because I've nothing to hide' is no different than saying 'I don't care about freedom of speech because I have nothing to say.' ...Rights don't have to be used by you individually to be valuable to a society. You can't have a free press without freedom of speech, and you can't have a free society without the right to privacy."
