I’ll never bring my phone on an international flight again. Neither should you.
Quincy Larson

I’d like to believe our founding fathers had philosophical discussions about what rights and what the government could do if confronted with a device that was so secure it could never be opened except by the owner. At the time, the only such device was the human mind. The entire constitution and law system is built on fundamental properties that your mind is your own and the government does not have right to access it. As we progress technology is becoming more and more an extension of our minds. Eventually the two will merge in such a way its indistinguishable. The government simply does not have a right to your mind. We have a word for it and what we used to consider processes by which authority uses their power to forcibly access a target’s mind called *torture*.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
