Re: Keys to the Kingdom
Well, major provisions of the PATRIOT Act have expired, at least.

For now.  The USA Freedom Act (hah) seems inevitable regardless, despite Rand Paul's efforts -- as national security hawks try to weaken the privacy protections in it.  :/

Re: Keys to the Kingdom
I very much agree. We have always been trying to claw our way out of the snow and sending out rescue missions with little hope. But from those instances procedures are formulated to try and minimize risk for the next go around. Unfortunately, some need to be burned by the stove before they learn not to touch it.

I don't think it's a slippery slope; I think it's we've already fallen off the mountain beneath an avalanche.

Re: good luck
The funny thing about other countries' calls for more privacy in the wake of the Snowden revelations was that it came out that all those other countries do the same thing.  :p

Keys to the Kingdom
It seems that law enforcement is asking for keys to the kingdom. Allowing encryption to the point where data is visible to law enforcement seems like an invasion of privacy. This is a slippery slope.
