My question was, "How should we permit privacy tools to be
circumvented?" His answer was, "You can try - someone might have used a
weak password, wrote it down somewhere or made another mistake. Or can
be pressured into telling it (the famous $5 wrench comes to mind here)."
If I ask "how should we permit privacy tools to be circumvented?" and
someone's answer is "Pressure them. A wrench comes to mind," well...
I've received an answer to how the person believes governments should be
permitted to obtain secrets. It's not a very good one.
