We agree on the concept of risk and reward.
I understand your points. I will only comment and say that there is a reason for secret courts, whether we like it or not. One cannot fight terrorists or criminal condpiracies when one has to broadcast what one is doing. Point: if an informant has to go to open court, they will be ineffective in the future and soon dead.
your last graph raises an interesting question. Other than that, I can only say that life is about trade offs and compromises. None of us get all we want all the time.If we don't compromise (e.g., your rights end where my nose begins), then society really cannot exist. And, because some can't live by generally accepted rules, we need laws to discourage bad behavior. Those laws, each and every one of them, interfere with someone's rights. Fair or not.So, we have to agree to...
I have expressed my opinion. You chose to insult me for it. The anger in your response was unjustified. You are trying to justify insulting me. That about sums up the conversation. Please don't bother to reply if you don't have anything constructive to say or that is not a personal attack.
No. Are you? Would you be OK with denying the authorities to written communications between conspirators too? If not, just how is that any different than the authorities access what is on a phone?
Yes. You have the right to not incriminate yourself. That right does not extend itself to written records you prepare or maintain, i.e., email, journals, computer records.
How else can you read the contents of a phone? If it's hacked, it only what is transmitted can be read. If it is not physically in their possession, just how do you think they can read it at all. Personally, I don't believe they are asking to remotely read a phone. But, even if they could, who is so egotistical to believe that they are a target? Too many people. Too much data.Hell, they can't even keep track of who is dead. Do you really think they have the time,...
You don't know what I do or do not know. But, I do know what and who your are. Your need to insult is very telling.
No. That's an illegal search. However, if the data is encrypted, he can only gain access to what I allow. An encrypted phone can't be accessed without the appropriate password. Once accessed, the data is accessible unless it, too, is encrypted.An open phone with encrypted data may be open but if you choose to do it, the data is still not accessible without the password.None of that should be accessed without permission except by court order.Of course all arguments are moot...
There is a difference between having a phone with encrypted data and an encrypted phone. I want the first. Not the second.
