I got a chuckle out of the "ban encryption" part kek

I'm not sure they understand how encryption works

Also how important it is for business. Banks, law firms, hospitals, etc. all use it to protect their shit.

Incidentally this same government has some pretty extensive cyber security and encryption requirements for all government contractors, all the way down to the guy who just builds simple custom bolts in his warehouse or something. With a third party certification requirement. But yeah, let’s ban encryption.

At least this confirmed the Fbi director is a retard. Not that further conformation was necessary

Aren't iPhones also encrypted as a basic feature? Good luck getting them to give that up.

I don't see how you can possibly be in charge of a bureau that investigates crime without understanding the role of encryption. It's damn near the only source of defense against cyber crime.

No shit.

Good point.

Citizens must allow all their internet connections to be monitored by anyone with a network sniffer.

All passwords must be transmitted in clear text because we banned encryption.

Why don't we ban hashes and passwords while we're at it.

Welcome to the government.

The same people demanding that we all get an experimental serum in our arms in order to take part in society.

Didn't you know all our government is run by Renaissance men geniuses? They know everything there is to know about firearms, biology, technology, transportation, manufacturing, education, delivery, sports, medicine, hunting, and any other thing in the world. They've studied countless hours to determine the best way to regulate and limit all these things because they know the ins and outs of all things.

That's why they are the chosen few.

And they have Facebook, Twitter and Google to fact check for us. Everything is okay.

A lot of this is smokescreen. I don't want to think of how many pseudo random number generators have been comped by NSA.
