So here is another attempt at a policy thread. Strong encryption available to the public. I believe there has been bi-partisan takes for several administrations now. Is our government moving in the right or wrong direction?

A backgrounder that I happened on for some context:

My initial take probably matches that of the article. Backdoor-enabled encryption is just an illusion of security and not a viable policy.

The danger is far greater from extra state actors (such as corporations) which have no legal barriers at all to spying.
