In the wake of the Paris tragedy, unscrupulous lawmakers and media reporters have suggested encryption was to blame, is therefore evil, and must be stopped.
As it turns out, though, these 'Masterminds' weren't encrypting their conversations at all, using unencrypted cellphones and plain old SMS text messaging.
Imagine that: real life villains are often dumb and not Agents of Spectre on the cutting edge of tech.
While I'm not one to say this often, I strongly encourage everyone to spread this story, because the liberty destroying counter narrative is certainly already being spread.
Don't let fear make us less safe by forcing us all to electronically leave a key under the mat for the cops, which other bad guys will surely find, too.
