"I’ve been watching as this goes forward—there’s this phrase going around the cybersecurity community, 'If you can't protect it, don't collect it.' Now, there is never going to be a system that's 100 percent safe. But what I'm going to start [saying] on the floor as we get to this [CISA debate], is, you give the government a huge new trove of personal information about Americans before you’ve addressed the problems that were documented all the way back to 2007—those security holes—before you address those, [before] you plug them, that’s like responding to a bear attack by stockpiling honey. That’s going to be how I open the debate."
Power corrupts. And atomic power corrupts atomically.
