The White House has endorsed a draconian “cybersecurity” plan now making its way through Congress.
It would essentially say all your clicks belong to us. Police would have carte blanche to seize domains, decrypt files, and run roughshod over citizens in the name of catching bad guys who are hiding behind proxy servers in the Ukraine or some other such place.
All this would be unnecessary if so-called Internet advocates had accepted a very basic truth that our Meat Space ancestors knew well.
Privacy and security are the same thing. Both depend on identity.
