"The FBI may have been able to unlock San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook’s work-related iPhone without conscripting Apple as an unwilling hacker, but that has not slowed down the government’s broader war on encrypted technologies one bit. It didn’t take long for another tragic terrorist attack, this one in Belgium, to provide fresh rhetorical ammunition to the stubborn officials in a quixotic battle against mathematical techniques that keep us safe online.

Group punishment inevitably means punishing people who are on your side. It's stupid.

If you are suspected of having drugs you can be raped by the state. Repeatedly. Without mercy. For hours and hours.

"Ever since the U.S. last October bombed a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Kunduz, Afghanistan, the U.S. vehemently denied guilt while acting exactly like a guilty party would. First, it changed its story repeatedly. Then, it blocked every effort — including repeated demands from MSF — to have an independent investigation determine what really happened. As May Jeong documented in a richly reported story for The Intercept yesterday, the Afghan government — rather than denying that the hospital was targeted — instead repeatedly claimed that doing so was justified; moreover, they were sympathetic to calls for an independent investigation, which the U.S. blocked. What is beyond dispute, as Jeong wrote, is that the “211 shells that were fired … were felt by the 42 men, women, and children who were killed.” MSF insisted the bombing was “deliberate,” and ample evidence supports that charge.

Despite all this, the U.S. military is about to release a report that, so predictably, exonerates itself from all guilt; it was, of course, all just a terribly tragic mistake. Worse, reports the Los Angeles Times’s W.J. Hennigan, “No one will face criminal charges.”

"If there’s one good thing about the election so far, it’s that the remaining major-party candidates, especially Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, are so thoroughly reviled even by members of their own parties that academic bigwigs, top-dollar pundits, and even Oscar-winning actors are actually talking about the need for more and different political parties. Sure, they’re all a little tetchy about “throwing their vote away” on somebody who has no chance in hell to win, but as someone who has never voted for a winning candidate at any level since high school class elections, I can tell you that nothing feels better than voting for someone or something you actually believe in rather than pulling the lever for the lesser of two or three evils."

"In a recent Monmouth University poll that asked people who'd they vote for in a three-way race among Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and the Libertarian Party (LP) candidate from 2012, 11 percent said they'd flip the switch for +Gov. Gary Johnson"
