This just pisses me off.

WTF is the point of the 5th amendment when you can be jailed forever by using it.

3-0 decision against the constitution.

If you ask me, the government is waging a slow and strategic war on the fifth amendment.

If they trample the fifth amendment outright, the public would (at least in theory) get upset. But if they slowly encroach on the fifth amendment in special cases with compelling circumstances, they can effectively whittle away at it bit by bit. At least until they figure out how to build a device and just pluck the information that they want out of your brain from six miles away, without you knowing that it ever happened in the first place. (Hopefully I will die before it gets to this point.)

Once again Assange has the people's back over the State:

There are more modern implementations now, but he helped build the first.

Reminds me of something I built. It's not an fs but a plausible deniability. What it was is a system for encrypting something by one of a large number mutations of a key meaning it would take work to open it. The idea is to write the code to encrypt it and delete the code memorizing the principles. Then if you want to decrypt you have to write software you aren't guaranteed to be able to write, memorize a password, and use cloud computing to crack it even if you do have the right password.

You could also use it with a salt file. Loose the salt file you not only have plausible deniability but verified deniability. You could also generage a folder of salts and memorize a mathematical property of the one with the right name (is a palendrom, is a prime, is ascending on the left side, is the first of the nuclear magic numbers concatenated).

Essentially if you want to throw something away but make it selectively recoverable.

Lol the patriot act effectively removed the 5th amendment and the NDAAs practically removed it

Holy shit. I need an upgrade on my tinfoil hat. I'd never even considered that.

In addition to most of the other amendments as well.
