@Citizenzibb uh oh.
@wholesomedonut Countries all over the world are just lining up their hammers and nails for encryption's coffin.
I’m no keyboard warrior. I’m a donut. But I’d like to see them TRY to leash that dog without getting bit.
I can already see the “Government website suffers repeated DDOS attacks” and etc. headlines popping up in my newsfeed.

It’s not a pretty outcome no matter how I think of it.
@wholesomedonut Who knows what will become of us all anyhow.
@Citizenzibb They keep beating this drum and I fear that their persistence will pay off. We need some kind of computer reformation.
@Citizenzibb holy shit. Somebody call up Phil Zimmermann
