Re: Patel

I have given NO indication that "the State is entitled to invade every aspect of our lives simply because they think they can". I do NOT think that "the State is entitled to invade every aspect of our lives simply because they think they can" or that they SHOULD. But I do believe the State WILL invade every aspect of our lives simply because they think they can. And not only because they THINK they can, but because, effectively, they can. Maybe not "every" aspects, but many, if not most of those that we consider, for now, private or no-go. And we may have as many sessions of Patel-hate as we wish, it means nothing as far as what is actually going to happen with encryption once the gov has finally made their move. And I don't see a solution when it happens.
