These encrypted messages the government want access to, let’s discuss them further and I will attempt to explain why this is so controversial. Encryption is a method of preventing data from being accessed by third parties. Most websites use encryption to protect its users, this ranges from email providers to messaging apps. To put it simply, encryption protects our privacy, and the government wants to have a ‘backdoor’ which will act as an access point to the data.
Besides the obvious attack on our civil liberties, and an addition to the rise of a Big Brother government privacy and civil liberties advocates have warned that moves to decrypt communications would simply push terrorists onto other technology platforms whilst having negative consequences for financial transactions, online commerce, and security of personal data.
If we start to trade in liberty for security then it’s a slippery slope to an Orwellian society, so don’t speak on behalf of us all Senator, speak on behalf of the trendy lefties you represent who love being controlled.
Where does the buck stop? Why in the world is the solution the government has come up with to combat terrorism, a solution that intrudes on their own citizens’ freedoms…suspicious? You should be. This was so predictable, the government makes the problem with lax laws and failed policy and solves the problem with strict laws on the victims. We’ve seen this over and over again and we cannot sit idle and let these people tread on us.
