Daily Affirmation: End to end encryption provides some safety, but it doesn't go far enough.

For decades our tools have failed to combat bulk metadata surveillance, it's time to push forward and support radical privacy initiatives.

Watching actual cryptographers debate about whether or not we should be voluntarily *weakening* encryption instead of radically strengthening threat models makes my skin crawl.

I don't think I can say this enough right? Some of you are under the weird impressions that systems are "too secure for the general public to be allowed access to" and it just constantly blows my fucking mind.

"But what if governments force people to weaken crypto"

LET THEM.

Let the governments ban keeping, and doing math on, secret numbers.

At that point maybe it will sink in.

I've been taking vacation the last week and a half. Can you tell?
