All of this stuff about security, privacy, and accountability is just academic masturbation. It has been for years. It is not going to change, because those with the power to change it aren't about to.
The oligarchs who control our governments, security forces, and political parties, own us completely. It is too late to stop them. It is a waste of time to complain and dangerous to resist.
Can we just drop all the faux political drama and talk about, I don't know, programming or something?
