Re: It is not my own government I am most worried about.

Well said, but those of the mindset we're reading here are wearing blinders and are squinting through their tunnel vision. Or, if women, they're squinting through the eye slits in their black shrouds.

That's why I mentioned Bletchley. If alive then, they'd be concerned about the rudeness and prying of reading the Nazi German military codes, even if the safety of whole cities depended upon accurate translations. That'd be a violation of Nazi's freedoms.

There's no denying the major cultural problem, a murderous problem.
