We'll just make it legal!

Mark Fiore responds in this video to the news that the government wants to make it easier to spy on all of us, all the time.

Essentially, officials want Congress to require all services that enable communications — including encrypted e-mail transmitters like BlackBerry, social networking Web sites like Facebook and software that allows direct “peer to peer” messaging like Skype — to be technically capable of complying if served with a wiretap order. The mandate would include being able to intercept and unscramble encrypted messages.

"How do we know who to watch, unless we watch all of you?"

Sometimes all you can do is laugh. I found the Mark Fiore video via Emptywheel.
