Cryptographic Crime

Prompted by “The FBI Wants the Key to Your Data”: http://reason.com/archives/2015/07/15/the-fbi-wants-the-key-to-your-data

I have visiting family today, and much else to do, so I’ll keep my opinion simple here.

“FBI Director James Comey argued that data should never be transmitted or stored in a way that frustrates government snooping. Comey warned that encryption is a boon to criminals and therefore must be designed so that law enforcement agencies can decode it when the need arises.”

That assumes that criminality and government are mutually exclusive, which history demonstrates to the contrary often enough to outright condemn the notion of Certain Cryptography Prohibition for the ironic sake of preventing abusive law.

Note the use of the word “Prohibition”. Certain Drug Prohibition doesn’t even form a “drug free” prison system, and nonetheless does not correspond with drug use/abuse reduction.

Rest assured that laws limiting cryptography options will not be followed by people whom break laws, so having those keys can only serve the purpose of convenient government snooping on law-abiding citizens’ lives.

Perhaps if law enforcement would end their addiction to Certain Drug Prohibition (e.g. stop deceiving and stealing taxpayer money from the public to get their fix), they would have enough resources to meet the ever-oncoming challenges of a rapidly increasing technological world in which the users and abusers have access to more and better technology.

I'm an honest freak (or reasonably responsibly balanced "misfit", if you prefer) of an entertainer working and resting as my careful contribution to help improve society. Too many people abuse reasoning (e.g. 'partial truth = whole truth' scam), while I exercise reason to explore and express whole truth without any conflict-of-interest.
