"It should be possible to break the law"
Marlinspike waits politely for his turn to speak. Then he makes a far simpler and more radical argument than any advanced by Apple: Perhaps law enforcement shouldn’t be omniscient. “They already have a tremendous amount of information,” he tells the packed ballroom. He points out that the FBI had accessed Farook’s call logs as well as an older phone backup. “What the FBI seems to be saying is that we need this because we might be missing something. Obliquely, they’re asking us to take steps toward a world where that isn’t possible. And I don’t know if that’s the world we want to live in.” Marlinspike follows this remark with a statement that practically no one else in the privacy community is willing to make in public: that yes, people will use encryption to do illegal things. And that may just be the whole point. “I actually think that law enforcement should be difficult,” Marlinspike says, looking calmly out at the crowd. “And I think it should actually be possible to break the law.”
WALID SHOEBAT — MAY 9, 2016 - Freedom Outpost
The whole “hate crime” idea, so popular in the West, is one of the biggest legal scams in our history.
Think about it- who commits an actual crime because they like somebody or something? Hate is a precondition of criminality. Nobody rapes, murders, or beats somebody into a bloody because they love that person. The only reason that “hate crimes” exist is to create social sigma so that one group in society might subjugate another using the legal system as a means of oppression. It is a perversion of justice in the truest sense because truth is made irrelevant to the imposition of the agenda of the ambitious.
Thankfully, Poland and other nations of Eastern Europe, who adopted this “hate crime” legislation and other foolish measures, are finally coming to their sense and abandoning them like a sinking ship, because that is what Western Europe is - a sinking ship that is falling into the ocean of history, and the Eastern nations want off before it is too late.
