Submission + - [Ask Slashdot] Hiding in plain sight |Between extremes

In other words; no cryptography, no Tor, etc., but also not leaving traces and keeping the possibility of being under surveillance, but only in such a way that basically only a human being from the government can do it as they wish?

It is not that I have something to hide, but in real life there shouldn't be a nanny, watching over your shoulder, writing down any move you make.

So Slashdot, is there a place, somehow, between these extremes? Or is there a way to engineer one? What does such 'luxury' take to achieve?
