I just want to make this perfectly clear: I will never use (known to be) backdoored crypto. I will not purchase "compliant" devices. If it comes down to it, I will stockpile grandfathered legacy devices.

Don't let the coronavirus hype distract you. They're pushing this shit through **right now**.

If you don't yet know about the government's latest attempt to legislate encryption backdoors, look here eff.org/deeplinks/2020/03/earn

@r000t there is no such thing as a grandfathered device in this bill. the whole point is to make it so you can't escape the control grid by going to ex. fediverse style tech.

consider facebook admitting they feel threatened by fedi alt tech and twitter talking about trust busting itself in to a distributed network. making every data server liable means its commercially impossible to have security while knowingly side stepping the court rulings that cemented the death of the crypto wars.

as for corona this is obviously a politicized outbreak IMO. there's too much stupid shit going on like

this bill happening at a time when people are "not allowed" to gather for, i dunno, a protest of stupid shit the government is doing?
helping cover for chinas time zero
waiting for containment to break to even announce containment attempts
the CDC holds patents on the disease
a complete screw job of reporting to prevent accurate information and rational responses
everyone now jumping on this to create massive economic collapse (Rockefeller types make their most money during great depressions, when they can buy the world for cheap, and we just experienced such a massive tank of markets)
pushes for mandatory vaccination (even though the CDC patent states that antibodies for covids are short lived, so you are literally only getting harmful adjuvents and an antibody that will expire in weeks and leave you vulnerable to re-infection)
blatently unconstitutional executive orders being passed at various levels (governors saying they can seize anything from anyone, which is in direct violation of the constitution)
people trying to jam containment bills with pork to pass their agendas


its kind of "curious" to force everyone to their homes and online and then turn around and try to delete online privacy again, isn't it? especially while also trying to push ubiquitous (harmful) 5G every mile?


Super long. Will make a real response later.

Not having legacy anything makes it 100% unenforceable, in practice. Just this week I've dealt with no fewer than two dozen unique systems used by "large ish" companies, that haven't seen a real update in at least 5 years.

I guess what I'm saying is, fuck, no legacy devices, how the fuck long of a cutover period will be used to allow for tortoises to come up to compliance.
