yeah, but they don't need evidence to do that, so crypto is largely
irrelevant. in fact it could save someone from the gulag... if they
*really* want to know what's encrypted they'll work out a deal. the
guantanamo gulag is reserved for people who can't be convicted anyway.
sooner or later the civilized world will liberate us... or we'll collapse
under our own weight.

He of all men should behave as though the law compelled him.
But it is the universal weakness of mankind that what we are
