"#encryption is a benefit of enforcing rights to which you're already entitled"

It's important because people have to have the chance to talk about what they care about, what the domain of their rights should be; where the boundaries should be drawn and to draw them themselves. Our rights are inherent to us, as a people, as a society. They're inherent to our nature, not granted by governments, merely guaranteed by governments. When you talk about encryption, they're missing the point. It's not really about encryption, encryption is a means to an end. Encryption is a benefit of enforcing rights to which you're already entitled. The real question here is - Do you have a right to have a conversation only with yourself? Do you have a space to develop your own ideas before you're comfortable sharing them with the world? Do you have the right to enjoy the fruits of your own intellect in the privacy of your home, your community, and your associates, without it having been intercepted, analyzed, and fundamentally, in a basic sense, prejudged by others who are not entitled to it?
