Innocent will suffer?
"Some argue that terrorists will simply move to better encryption systems and only the innocent will suffer, but that credits the terrorists with smarts they don't always possess."
Isn't this the case with most laws? Law abiding citizens are restricted and at times burdened by laws while law breakers can often do as they please as long as they're smart enough not to get caught.
Of course, laws should exist to protect people from actual violence and crime, but world governments these days are too eager to make crimes out of normal behavior. Where the hell did this entitlement come from?
In a democracy, some might argue that the people are responsible for their own governments. But that's only true to a point, since people generally don't vote directly on issues/laws. They vote on politicians who, out of logically substantiated concern over their political career, are influenced by entities not representing public interest.
