Here I am trying to be a good, responsible, law-abiding citizen, and it's getting harder and harder as it seems they also want me to be a gullible idiot.
So, I have to blow holes in my own shields, and hope nothing bad gets in, while being spied upon by multiple global entities all of whom have competing interests, some cripplingly corrupt, some paranoid with a hair trigger, some leaky as a sieve, some hosting 'guests' they know nothing about yet.
Not to mention that since my job can involve Defence against the Dark Arts I may indeed be discussing weaponising attacks against large corporates to see if we can break the shields. No avenue for misunderstanding there. Already avoiding trips to Arkham America.
Meanwhile at home I want to watch Expanse 2, or Game of Thrones, or something else my friends are watching, and each goddamn thing needs a different subscription to a different service I don't otherwise want in return for owning nothing while ultimately paying more. I have already had one cancel my subscription because they suddenly decided they now wanted more personal details than I wanted to give them.
And if I backup something I do actually own, seeing as I already own things that have degraded to death that I still want to watch, does that still make me a criminal? I've lost track! How long before purchasable physical media itself disappears?
Will streaming media encryption be exempt from the backdoor laws? Betcha 5 bucks it will be.
