Cute little song. The title translates as "nothing to hide."

Risk is a consequence of dependence. Because of shared
dependence, aggregate societal dependence on the Internet is not
estimable. If dependencies are not estimable, then they will be
underestimated. If they are underestimated, then they will not be
made secure over the long run, only over the short. As the risks
become increasingly unlikely to appear, the interval between
events will grow longer. As the latency between events grows,
the assumption that safety has been achieved will also grow, thus
fueling increased dependence in what is now a positive feedback
loop. Accommodating rejectionists preserves alternative, less
complex, more durable means and therefore bounds dependence.
Bounding dependence is the core of rational risk management.
