I was dismayed by ‘sounds of silence’ and disinterest on this topic when I shared similar articles. Getting EU and politician types involved is a double-edge sword. Recently, I our own Australia Prime Minister has post some totally weird and absurd speeches on this topic http://www.independent.co.uk/news/malcolm-turnbull-prime-minister-laws-of-mathematics-do-not-apply-australia-encryption-l-a7842946.html . I am stunned that so many people don’t understand the fundamentals of an open while secure internet (viz. encryption to keep unwanted out of our bank transactions). Maybe, we will have to use TOR more frequently for our open internet options.
