These people don't care about securing the INTERNET. It's becoming so obvious it's just a power grab. We've got SCADA systems on the net with embedded accounts, and some group of people who can't even spell cryptography and probably cannot do single variable calc telling us they know how to secure things. It's about control. It's up to us to create and defend a safe & free INTERNET for all. Redesign it from the ground up if we have to.

Most people involved--such as Edward Snowden & William Binney--do not want "law enforcement neutered." Some of the things the feds are doing is completely outside of law with no public scrutiny and narrow compartmentalized oversight. Even the more radical folks like Jacob Appelbaum are proposing very basic things that can be done to make the internet safer for all of us.

"Liberty is so great a magician, endowed with so marvelous a power of productivity, that under the inspiration of this spirit alone, North America was able within less than a century to equal, and even surpass, the civilization of Europe."

- Mikhail Bakunin

10 years locked in a cage for sharing knowledge, enforced by the Government--who is supposed to serve the people--at the behest of oligarchs who want total control of information. Imagine what we could achieve in this century that not even Bakunin observed. I mean free culture is exploding but what most people are exposed to is unfortunately not that system.
