Computer software and hardware backdoors will allow the Government to keep us safe. That’s what the government wants us to believe.
Uhh, I’ve seen that movie before… it was called:
“TSA agents and metal detectors will keep people from bringing dangerous items on air planes”
The results: A new mother can’t bring 8 ounces of bottled breast milk on a plane, but any jackass can sneak a 5 inch blade or zip gun on a plane with little effort… as long as he is willing to wait in 2 hour security lines at the terminal.
Backdoors in software/hardware won’t keep us safe from anything. All it’s going to do is allow the government to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to create departments and committees that track the companies and back doors and give congress something to bloviate about every election season.
