@matthew_d_green The solution to the problem posed in that piece is referenced in it: got messages when they had a legitimate reason to have them. End-to-end encryption stops mass surveillance, but clearly did not stop the Jan 6th investigations. I think its pretty clear that phones should be treated like one's house in terms of search and seizure. Courts can compel people to give info, and can compel people to unlock their phones. My guess is that's how FBI got info from Signal.

@eighthave @matthew_d_green Indeed, and that's why we shouldn't have mass surveillance. The police should just put in the time to research suspects.

@eighthave @matthew_d_green we have to make progress in how we educate the general population about data rights and privacy. We need a data bill of rights yesterday.
