bad guys are convince us they're the good guys - can and will abuse this.
because it exists, they'll get (have gotton) around any inconvenient barriers and now, everything is of 'national security, just let us in' level.
I advocate for ending all law-enforcement and government access to email and online encrypted comms. governments exist for the betterment of their people (that's the idea, even though its never quite followed, in practice). no LE official really can be trusted with power; we're seeing this almost daily, certainly weekly. give authority figures lots of power and they'll abuse it.
so, I advocate for fully removing all access, even so-called emergencies. you blew you. we tried trusting you, you fucked us and now we have to take the ability away for all things, both good and bad. thanks for fucking this up, guys. it could have worked, but noooooo, you had to go mess things up for everyone.
that's what I would like to see. removal of all spy powers, all code in core routers, edge routers, switches, gateways, etc - will have the sections removed for the next build cycle (lol..., I can dream, its my dream, dammit.)
its only a dream. reality is far uglier. routers/etc have 'legal intercept' built and baked right in, and I think that's just wrong. because the ones who have access to that can't be trusted and those above them (on up) - I really wish that feature set was gone, tomorrow. we'd be a step closer to real freedom online and because goverments really hate it when their people are truly free, they will do all they can to keep things the way they are now.
we can't change what's below tcp and ip. but we can layer new secure virtual networks on top of that. that's what the tech community should be working towards. the layers below - all spooked. fully untrustable. go define new secure layers on top of that mess and then we'll have internet-v2 that we can really trust.
