That's a great quote! Not sure where you saw that attribution though?

Yah that's like a Darwin quote I'm pretty sure. Also politicians are dumb about basically everything when it comes to science and technology so what else is new.

Ignorant morons writing laws on stuff they don't understand. Reminds me of that buffoon in Alaska a decade or so ago that went around saying the "internet is a series of tubes".

Let's say this bill passes. This would force companies to remove E2E encryption (like recently Whatsapp announced).

Does this still mean that I can get E2E encryption over here? I'm not in the US thus this bill should have no effect on me, and I want E2E encryption in Whatsapp to chat with other people in my country.
Or would it basically force Whastapp to remove E2E from its whole service (and not just towards its US citizens), fucking me in the process too?

I am against that law. I want to know that the intelligence agencies have to do some work to break my rights. At least then I know some people had a bad time.

Is Feinstein the dumbest person alive or does it just constantly, coincidentally seem that way.

Damn. Just when I thought I'd forgotten about that, someone has to remind me.

"Ban all encryption! Wait, if there was no encryption anyone could access my email and online banking and offshore bank accounts and other stuff ? What even is encryption?"

To be fair to David Cameron, I find mummies very frightening too. I wouldn't want to be encrypted with one

No, but seriously I want to know this

Should the US/UK/etc get to propose bills and shit that affect the whole world?

I'm pretty sure they tried something comparable in the 1700s

Feinstein is a straight up imbecile. When she was a state politician in the 80's she stupidly dropped information on the Nightstalker case on television, which resulted in Richard Ramirez destroying the sneakers he'd used in all previous attacks (he saw the broadcast!). Then there was the gun debacle....where Feinstein herself carries a loaded firearm, but she wishes to deny that privilege to everyone else.

She's a moron and a hypocrite.
