After a while, we'll be forced to revolt and then we'll all be terrorists. The terrorists win! (which will be us so YAY! I guess.)

I saw a similar thing where they also blamed "not enough surveillance of who's out there"

And manufacturer as many "incidents" as needed. Operation Northwoods is wonderful proof of this.

By this point it really doesn't matter (from this aspect) who and why did the attacks. As long as people are willing to give away civil liberties for false sense of security the governments will be opportunistic.

NBC's Today show had the Director of National Security or some nonsense on this morning going on about the encrypted messaging services as well. Nothing but scaremongering and morons will buy it unfortunately. Make encryption illegal and the terrorists will just hide it via steganography. Meanwhile the law-abiding citizens have no privacy.

This is government we're talking about here. Give them an inch and they'll take a mile. ... and please Try to make sure they do not slip the encryption ban into some new legislation with a name like the "Right To Secure Communications Act"

Everybody ready? 1... 2... 3...

How are terrorist attacks in any way comparable to encryption?

[–] xeemee 0 points 18 points (+18|-0) ago  (edited ago)

it's not about a comparison, it's about the MSM claiming that encryption enables "terrorists" to communicate secretly as well as discouraging the general public from using encryption, the reason, of course, being that encrypted communications are harder to spy on (government, your ISP, etc.)

So? Having a locked door does the same thing. But you don't see people pulling locks off their door.

They had a couple ex-CIA officials claiming that the French government failed to catch the perpetrators BEFORE the attack because of encrypted messaging apps.

Because the NSA, CIA, FBI and other intelligence services were prevented from stopping these kinds of attacks. /s
