even if the rumours are true that "the government" may have such an ability, we'd never know.

If you still know your passphrase, and have not done so, create a revocation certificate.
Keep both the revocation certificate and your passphrase in a secure and secret (to you)
place (but remember where you put them).

Anyone who has your passphrase and your private key can decrypt
things encrypted for you.  Anyone who has your revocation certificate
can revoke your key.
