we need to make them really work, to the point of being overloaded.
imagine if 10,000 people showed up and were 'violent enough' (not that I even believe this crap) to get their phones stolen. yes, stolen, not 'seized'. and they put nothing but encrypted random bytes on it.
the so-called authorities would spend man-years trying to get nothing.
imagine if it was 100k or 1M people.
the ultimate DOS of the feds that no longer work for us, but seem to be a rogue arm of the government.
it would bring a big smile to my face to imagine them trying to decrypt pure randomness.
basically, we have to make it too expensive for them to keep doing this shit to the population.
problem is: the US has lost its ability to really rebel against its own illegal government. we don't really do much in the way of protesting, and the gov guys do all they can to scare us into NOT doing this. and most people are easily controlled by fear (understandably so). so this would not really happen in the current climate. we are not hungry enough to really rebel as a whole, yet. maybe it will get to that point, though. trend surely shows that direction.
