a good pithy quote that sums up my take well enough

"The EARN It Act threatens the safety of activists, domestic violence victims, and millions of others who rely on strong encryption every day," Kate Ruane, senior legislative counsel of the American Civil Liberties Union, said in a statement. "Because of the safety and security encryption provides, Congress has repeatedly rejected legislation that would create an encryption backdoor. This bill is not the solution to the real and serious harms it claims to address."
