The idea of Rust is cool but in real life it sucks

- Is a Mozilla creation -> strike one

This. All this procedure is bullshit theatre to make the masses believe there is justice. They do whatever they want including murder and starting illegal wars over bullshit. #Vault7 is proof they want omnipotent control over all communication so dossiers can be formed to blackmail and intimidate all persons who may try to rock the boat.

So, you choose to remain optimistic because a fiction book you read once described something similar? I hate to break it to you but the tooth fairy, santa clause and reaction-less drives do not exist.

Think about what we've all learned from the Snowden leaks. We now know the federal government will stoop to utterly insane levels of paranoia to spread their reach. I would not put it past them to do something like send Microsoft an NSL which forces them to include a DiskFiltration feature in all OS disk drivers just in case they ever encounter a difficult air-gapped target.
