Without secrets you are totally at the mercy of government with no 
recourse whatsoever.  Your life is at the mercy of whichever mob is 
currently on top and may object to various parts of it.   Total 
transparency is a recipe for total oppression.

Total transparency says the government does need to apply to search and 
dig into every aspect of your life as they already know everything 
about you.   Double plus Not Good.
