lmao I'd like to see them try
@Gargron love to live in the land of freedom
@Gargron time to add encrypted private messaging to Mastodon? 😂
@Gargron Why is that idiot in charge? .-.
@Gargron I support strong encryption. Let's PREVENT those WANKERS at NSA and the British Spy Agency GCHQ from reading my love letters... or my plan for VIOLET OVERGROW!
I wonder if it's really just a coincidence that Germany's Seehofer just had about the same idea recently.
Also, what's with the bit where US citizens aren't allowed to BREAK encryption so that, e.g. the ebooks we bought keep working, but we also aren't allowed to HAVE encryption so that, e.g. what we say to our traveling partner stays private? Pick one or the other, elected officials, or [more] people are going to realize that the surveillance state is only here for the benefit of big business.
@Gargron that's crazy! Here's hoping that they don't pass anything like this!
Not going to happen.
Try actually paying attention to the obvious warning signs.
@Gargron OMG! I hope that this doesn't happen. It would be really bad and a win for a surveillance state.
