Mark Cuban: What Do You Have to Hide? – The Most Dangerous Question in America
Mark Cuban, Blog Maverick, Released on 2/28/16
Lets supposed that you agree, like I do, that 99pct of Americans are honest. We live our lives in a law abiding fashion. That there is nothing about our lives that is noteworthy or worth hiding from anyone other than maybe the people closest to us. No one wants everyone close to us to know everything about us. There has to be a little mystery, right ? A little salvation from embarrassment, right ? We have all our own secrets that we like to keep to ourselves. That is just human nature.
And as far as the rest of the world knowing those items, we are blessed by “security via obscurity” . No one gives a shit about us. They don’t even know we exist. So no one asks us to share those secrets.
