Backdoor Barr

August 8, 2019

It’s unsurprising that Attorney General Barr wants a backdoor to encrypted data. It reflects this administration’s authoritarianism bent. Barr doesn’t understand the technology. And he doesn’t care about the clear 1st amendment issue. A nation like China can jail people just for having encryption apps on their phone. That would be an ugly step for a democracy. (Interestingly, the first moves to liberal government banned the use of torture, whose purpose was the same: to reveal information someone wants to keep secret.)

Door was photographed in Spain. Which now lacks an inquisition, and is no longer Catholic. Though its recent fascism may yet lurk.
