"The law says, you shall break this encryption..." - except that it doesn't. Your sentence should say: "The government says..." - and then, of course, your position has less support.
"Corporations aren't on our side. Ever." Well, that's a nice *opinion* to have, except that corporations are on our side all the time - after all, they produce the products & services we want - I'd count that as being 'on our side'. As a matter of fact, show me a single corporation that stayed in business for very long by *not* being on our side? Governments, on the other hand, do stuff to their population that isn't in that population's best interest all the time - e.g. the Snowden disclosures.
"Cook is playing on our distrust of government snooping in order...." It's obvious from the recent Snowden disclosures and countless historical incidents that, in fact, we cannot trust government. Not only do governments intentionally violate citizens' rights - there have been countless cases of sheer ineptitude that violated our rights. To wit, the recent hack of millions of detailed background-check records in the CIA. Those idiots didn't intentionally give up these highly sensitive documents, they were just too inept by leaving them on a network for someone to steal! So when the FBI says to Apple "this is just a one-time executable that will get thrown away when we're done with it" I just have to laugh. Yes, perhaps Tim Cook is "playing on our distrust" to highlight the security of Apple devices and sell a few more units. That doesn't mean that distrust is misplaced.
"Sorry, but I'm not buying it. I don't have my life on my mobile..." Good for you - the rest of the world isn't living your hermit life.
