"The state doesn’t “tap” your phone. Your telco does. It has equipment in its core network for the task, and is legally required to have that equipment."

Why do you think people here don't understand what LI is? I suspect most do.

I would note, though that when it comes to things like CALEA in the US, that's the state tapping not just your phone, but everyone's. The state is just using the telco as its agent.
