It's an even playing field.
Why can't the f*cking government security agencies just do their job without somebody else doing it for them. I can't believe they are that dumb.
If you create a back door then the agencies get to spy on all the innocent people except the terrorists who will build their own encrypted networks.
Who gets the key to the back door? The US? The Brits? The Russians? Most certainly the Chinese... Who is allowed to spy on who? WTF?
