“In any *democratic* society we need to provide law enforcement with a right to obtain information authorised by a judge, based on a clear suspicion, in cases involving serious crime or terrorism."
Amazingly, I agree with you in full... Which is exactly why WE in our society need "irreversable encryption" as you call it, more than ever before.
I love it when politicians prove themselves correct dispite their best efforts to be disingenuous.
(by the way is there such a thing as irreversable encryption? Surely the definition of encryption includes a method to retrieve said data).
