Legal "The U.S. government has attempted to obtain the master encryption keys that Internet companies use to shield millions of users' private Web communications from eavesdropping. These demands for master encryption keys, which have not been disclosed previously, represent a technological escalation in the clandestine methods that the FBI and the National Security Agency employ when conducting electronic surveillance against Internet users." Well. "And where once you had the freedom to object, think, and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillence coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission."

The way I see this all happening

I think all of this will come to a head pretty quickly and congress will shut them down for now. Then some big attack will happen because "they" let it happen to prove their point, and then everything will kick back into high gear again since everyone will be ready to give up their freedoms for safety from the bad guys.

Terrorism is an evil word at every angle it seems.
