    Should door locks be illegal to make executing search warrants easier?

    Logically I REPEATED your question.

    Prior to his stint as Attorney General, Eric Holder argued that private citizens had no right to data encryption or "anonymizing" features such as VPN....one reason he was called a "personal privacy nightmare" by a CNET editor and other advocates for on-line security....

    The old argument was "if you're not doing anything wrong than you have nothing to hide".... but the same could be said for prohibiting locks on your doors and eliminating the need for search warrants...

    The fact that this kind of thing does exist in other countries is yet another example of the exceptional nature of the American system and how so many other cultures so-easily accept their place as subjects of an all-powerful State...

    If it were illegal data would be easy to steal dumbass. Everything is encrypted. You connection to this website probably is.

    I am pretty sure if you knew how ridiculous that question sounded, you wouldn't have asked it in the first place.  Data encryption works at every level in the Internet now, actually preventing many many cyber crimes.  Any address that starts with "https://" is encrypted.
