95 Theses of Cyber

J.M. Porup by toholdaquill by J.M. Porup (jmporup.com)

A democracy engaged in mass surveillance will not long remain a democracy. The greatest threat to America and the freedom we cherish, or claim to cherish, is the so-called “intelligence community.” And if we want our freedom back, we must smash the engines of surveillance and punish the secret police for their crimes against the American people.


Let us strip away the web of lies: If mass surveillance continues unchecked, then let us call our system of government by its true name: Tyranny, run by the secret police, to protect the oligarchs from the people.


The truth alone will set us free.

This is a long read. Only the first eight have been written.

Why is anyone using encrypted e-mail anymore, anyway? Reliably and easily encrypting e-mail is an insurmountably hard problem for reasons having nothing to do with today's announcement.

Interesting that Bruce things email encryption is a lost cause. For reasons that are mostly about ease of use.
