Here we go again... UK Prime Minister urges nerds to come up with magic crypto backdoors

Magical Thinking

"The insistence by political leaders and prosecutors that there is a way to both have a backdoor and not have a backdoor has been put forward so frequently that experts have even come up with a term to summarize it: magical thinking."

Isn't there already a term for it? "Cognitive dissonance".

Just wait for those grapes to turn sour...
