Maybe we should just give the government everything. Every event, every key stroke every opened file and every change in the file. I wonder how much data your average desktop would produce, now scale that up to every PC, laptop, tablet, phone, IOT in the country plus every server, router switch etc.

Now turn that data fire hose at the government and see how they like it.
