Saying you don’t mind surveillance because you have nothing to hide is like saying you don’t believe in freedom of speech because you have nothing to say. This was something Snowden said.
The fact is, privacy is fundamental to the fabric of our society, and we should all be concerned when people threaten to take it away.
Strong encryption is one of the most powerful tools we have for protecting our privacy. End-to-end encryption is particularly important.
Currently there are 2 bills in congress in the USA that are trying to make end to end encryption illegal:
There is the EARN IT bill which threatens crucial freedom of speech protections for online publishing platforms unless these platforms abide by “best practices” set forth by a very anti-encryption commission.
And there is the “lawful access to online data” act, which would force back doors into all our encrypted devices and platforms.
We need to stand up and fight against bad encryption laws before the balance of power tips irretrievably away from the individual.
