TLDR: Poorly. Gentlemen, ready your archive links.

That reminds me of this quote I saw:
The rise of the Net and the Web represents a victory for the counterculture and the subculture. The next generation, raised on the Net as their primary medium, won't even know what consensus reality is.
The guy who made that quote twenty some years ago was booted off Facebook yesterday for using an alias.

The upside to that is the sooner we all recognize that, the sooner we can all put our heads together and work on something that can't fall to commercialism or centralization. If nothing else, we have some very valuable things to learn from this whole experience.

As stupid as the idea of backdooring encryption is, I don't think the author gets the point Jim Comey is trying to make. He acknowledges that legislation wouldn't stop encryption, it would just make it more inconvenient for unskilled people - like a suicide bomber to implement it, and not give US companies the financial incentives to get more difficult to intercept communication devices sold to whomever wants to use them.
Like I said, it's a stupid idea, but you have to know your own biases.
