Privacy, Security, Encryption If you're modest, think twice before having sex in your van, truck, or RV. Law enforcement uses roving vans with backscatter X-ray technology to peer inside vehicles (the same technology used in airport body scanners). In the Land of the Free, authorities don't request search warrants. More at Forbes here and here. What, you don't want an X-ray bath?

These security technologies don't do anything to stop terrorists, at least the serious ones.

You can back scatter all you want, if I want to take down a plane.

Its going _down_.

Same thing if I want to blow up the Congress. You are not going to be able to stop me.

This ultimately will end with everyone being sent to the Gulag.

These security policies are the paranoid delusions of an desperate Empire in decline.
