It's no wonder the U.S. wants backdoors into encryption so fucking bad. They had it once for half the world and now they want it again.
@radicalrobit Holy, holy shit even!
@radicalrobit CIA: "Can you imagine a world without the US being able to indiscriminately spy on other countries???"
@radicalrobit what makes you think they don't already have it and are preparing for the next 1/2 century?
That said, there's good reason to believe that every commodity computer part made by a US company has an NSA backdoor in it.
@radicalrobit Wow, WTF
@radicalrobit That's OK, I planned ahead and bought us all the boxes of chex mix I could find!
@radicalrobit "More than a dozen countries still use encryption systems from Crypto AG." Oh no
@radicalrobit 'Crypto AG sold two versions of the system—one strongly encrypted for friendly governments, and one with "rigged" encryption for the rest of the world.'
Sounds about right.
@radicalrobit oh wow
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
