Comment I made an Adroid app for this once... (Score 1) 229

It only leaves the public key on the phone, and the private key on your computer (which presumably is in a safe environment), and encrypts the files one-way. You can't even review them on the phone itself. Needless to say, nobody understood what the app was for... so I pulled it.

I don't get it. Are you blaming the radio, the machetes, or the people? Or are you perhaps saying that there are plenty of organizations out there that could kill a million people in two weeks time, but that don't, because they would be held accountable, even if eventually.

"The Nazis were able to rise in the Weimarer Republic for many reasons, and one of them was that they were able to poison the political climate by extraordinary hate speech and by roaming the streets and beating up political opponents."

I don't know if you're doing this as a rhetorical trick (that would be ironic!) but your 'and' in this sentence conflates using speech and beating people up (because you seem to suggest that the Nazis used other tricks as well, so this is, as it were 'one item on the list'). Try to keep the discussion pure (hah!) - they are not the same thing. An argument against the one (using speech), is not an argument against the other (beating people up), but you make it seem like it is.
