Re: Legitimate encryption

"Any claims that backdoored encryption will only be decrypted with a warrant are false"

Here's a much simpler analogy: Gummint wants to have EVERY DOOR LOCK be unlockable with a gummint-mandated skeleton/master key. The Gummint ensures you that THEY will be the only ones with this skeleton/master key.

OK - how long before someone abuses THAT setup? Either Gummint _OR_ some clever locksmith? That's right, nobody EVER plants evidence or does a "bogus warrant" search for political reasons, right?
