All for one, one for all ……. if you have nothing to hide?
Some opinions and calls for prosecution in some instances which are secured against wilful and wanton persecution and thought reasonably safe against crazy misinterpretation may be clearly demented, and the result of a debilitating neurological disease, rather than simply flirting around in the company of evil. To imagine there being no backdoor access to all encrypted systems, both elite and common, politically correct and incorrect, in favour of a remotely decided subjective limited access to a select few which are threatening just a relatively small number of status quo stabilities, is always going to struggle to be thought wise and perfectly acceptable rather than exposed as being liable and immediately an object subjected to rampant abuse and self-serving criminal and ethical misuse. …… for such is the obscene nature of the beast concocting the scene.
And such prosecutions and persecutions with demented solutions are not confined to encrypted services. Plain common free speech in the questions one asks, and in the answers in replies from others way beyond one’s command and control, are also targets for pernicious attack in a mad manic and panic endemic world, and here be a current, present 0day sub-prime example of that particular abomination? ……..

Re: To use raw power is to make yourself infinitely vulnerable to greater powers -Frank Herbert
Such legislation will make evil-minds think more about having a cyber-security cell within their outfits. In short, <read the title>. ….. rjed
Quite so, rjed, have an upvote for that informative post …… however, nevertheless, such legislation will make greater powered minds think about having evil cyber-security cells within their outfits. In order to both attract and short circuit such dodgy virtual operations. It is only natural and therefore fully to be expected and accepted.
And the fact that so many may call such a situation, absolute nonsense, simply and clearly confirms the title premise and the notion that all are infinitely vulnerable to a greater power with greater powers.

Re: It’s easy…You pays your money, you takes your choice @lxndr
Governments don’t have a right to what you have shared, lxndr, however they may very well have a fervent all-consuming desire. The one is completely different from the other.
It is no more complicated than that, no matter how much is said and spun to try and deny it is so. And such is invariably self-serving and primarily designed to try and hide from general view and common knowledge, unsavoury government tolerated or sanctioned shenanigans which they would persecute and prosecute as being abhorrent and criminal whenever copied and performed by others no matter where.
The knowledge of the veracity of those simple facts is the deadly phantom enemy that they do vain battle against, jousting as they continually do against the windmills in their mind and the honest soul who would ask them about the validity of such facts as they would desire to be a fantastic fiction they could easily deny and disprove ……. without drawing any further inquisitive attention to any of their attempts at covering up their discovered actions and guilty proactivity.
However, once the horse is bolted, locking the stable door is no answer. One just needs to accept and prepare for the loss and take the hit and stop digging down deeper into one’s own burial pit. Hopefully it leaves one wiser but ….. as Einstein is reputed to have said ……. “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” …… and he knew quite a lot about some really weird things, didn’t he, and is even to this very day universally feted for them, by all accounts.

Now that’s a tad controversial, Dan 55, and quite troubling to some to be sure, although is it often said rules are just made to be broken and/or ignored ….. and ideally so if one has a better master plan to follow.
🙂 Beware the unexpected knock on the door though, if that proposed plan is a real dud and damp squib.
