Encryption by itself solves nothing. If it did, everything on the Internet would be secure because every character on the Internet is encoded in ASCII, which is a code with a key. What matters is the algorithm, key production, and key management. A VPN may use a good algorithm, but the session keys are held by the VPN provider, in addition to yourself, which could completely negate the security of both the algorithm and the key.
Since there's no freedom of speech in China, I guess it's okay for Apple to suppress speech in China too. Apple doesn't have to adhere to high moral standards in other countries. It's not really a double standard; it's a different local standard in each country. Tim Cook and Xi Jinping can continue to cooperate to suppress speech or commit genocide in China since it's legal there.
Marvin said:Being greedy is not paying taxes, which goes to support people worse off, supporting right-wing interests against the environment, against inclusion, promoting greed and self-interest. This seems to be lost on libertarians who think that looking after themselves ahead of everyone else means a better world for everyone and who would rather give up their life than give up any of their possessions.
