The resistance to end to end encryption by these entities

The resistance to end to end encryption by these entities would be there regardless of whether they can easily intercept & decrypt en masse. A couple of reasons come to mind, and I'm sure there are others:

1. Intercepting & decrypting en masse would be even easier with official backdoors.

2. Dropping opposition to end-to-end encryption would let everyone know you can already intercept & decrypt en masse.
