I believe I can demonstrate that privacy helps security and that the choice of "privacy or security" is a false choice constantly chanted by the government bodies.
Society is constantly asked to "voluntarily" give up privacy for the sake of security across the globe. In some cases, society is tricked into giving up legal rights and hundreds of years of legal doctrine in a single bill such as the "patriot act". In the end, we have less privacy and I would argue less security.
