Privacy Under Threat

This makes me want to vomit with rage. There’s not much for me to add since this is a surprisingly well-balanced piece.

I do want to say that strong encryption is important to maintaining privacy in the digital age and that any attempts to undermine strong encryption are blows to personal privacy. I can’t help but feel that the sorts of people that are so opposed to Roe v. Wade are opposed to it not only because it’s about personal control over a woman’s body, but also because the opinions states that there is a right to privacy and affirms Griswold v. Connecticut in this regard.

Authoritarians are as authoritarians do. I advise everyone to follow this story and alert your congress-critter to your opposition when it shows up in the new year. Rest assured I will be following this story.
