Court says manufacturer must supply software to break encryption on Syed Farook’s phone so it can be accessed without wiping his data

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is more important than background checks for owning guns or even owning guns at all. This is about opening up a back door to your privacy for all governments as well as for talented malicious hackers will going forward have an opening to connect to all our personal electronic information....That information pretty well now starts collecting before you are even born whether you like it or not. This back door would also allow governments and those with malicious intentions and even anyone/or corporation with big data collection abilities into your personal communication system.


Most people now use these systems and connect to even more personal data links and connect to others. Even tribal camel herders in deserts use these systems on a moment to moment basis. Do you think serious mass murders could find a way to still do what they intend? Did people mass murder before electronics?

 

Just think if a tech savvy hacker wants to target important people. This back door can give those hackers the access to any data as well as the government having access to the potential bad guy (that might decide take precautions to go around that open door) but all the rest of us will also be unlocked and have unprotected privacy for our information as well....In the case of suicide bombers and attackers it is worth the risk that no one will catch them before they carry out what plan they intend to take a death risk anyway. But what is the risk of this privacy invasion to the rest of us that plan to go on living and not kill ourselves?

 

You may say good people should have nothing to hide....Do you really believe everyone that gets hold of your personal information intends to use it for your good and understand you than you are not being honest with yourself. What will happen if the USA leads this privacy invasion? Think what will happen to people that are already living in nations that love to oppress and suppress their residents. Many people would love to find out things that could disadvantage someone else and give them an advantage over that person. A simple difference of opinion or a major life catastrophic event is enough to do the trick very often. Think of that co-worker or friend that used what you thought was as honest disclosure against you...Rare is the person that hasn't experienced that more than once.

If you prefer information as an infographic this one does a good job explaining CISPA.

20 Stunning Social Media Statistics Plus Infographic - Jeffbullas's Blog

20 Stunning Social Media Statistics Plus Infographic - Jeffbullas's Blog | Occupy Your Voice! Mulit-Media News and Net Neutrality Too | Scoop.it
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Media Matters and that is why all citizens should understand and participate in shaping media policy. Too few in charge of too much of anything that impacts so many is a recipe for corruption, manipulation and will create a huge imbalance in power and wealth. 

Media Matters and with so many millions building this up why are we not charging for our part of the build up or at least protecting or our own interest in what we have all created together and paying more careful attention to policy?

 

The ones that have original ideas should be richly rewarded by those that benefit from those ideas but so should the people, citizens or customers that got behind them and turned their ideas into house hold names because we all embraced their creations.

 

The open, neutral internet that created this and our privacy should not be under constant threat of loss by the very companies and governments all these efforts, much less our time, often our tax dollars and through our support we all  helped to create.

Yahoo's Fight for its Users in Secret Court Earns the Company Special Recognition in Who Has Your Back Survey

Each year, EFF’s Who Has Your Back campaign assesses the policies and practices of major Internet companies as a way to encourage and incentivize those companies to take a stand for their users in the face of government demands for data.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I think all companies should be fighting for the interest of the customers that trusted them with their business and more should be fighting or acting on behalf of their customers.

 

 I also think citizens should be standing stronger for their own interest. We need to have some huge, specific, general strikes to stand our own ground without having to harm anyone with guns.

 

These are the three things I would recommend to stand for first.

 

1.  Communication:

The open internet needs to be made the LAW with net neutrality being the formal LAW that says no WEB site access can be blocked, slowed, or interrupted without a warrant and just cause in each case. That would include be to tell both the governments and the corporations of all types hands off without just cause. A clear message that governments and businesses are allowed to operate only to serve the interest of the citizens and not the other way around. http://www.scoop.it/t/it-s-our-web-lets-keep-it-neutral-and-open  

 

2.  Privacy:

We need to upgrade the 4th amendment with a Law covering all media and mass communication systems...no spying, search or seizure without a warrant for each case and notification of this event if prosecution cannot be made so that breached PW and other security may be readjusted. Industries too risky (power/water and the pentagon) to run on the WEB should have closed systems so security can be controlled without compromising all citizens’ security.

 

3.Economic power:

We need to rally for the Anti-Corruption Act and criminalize the corruption of money in our policies at both the State and National levels. http://anticorruptionact.org  We need to meet at town halls or kitchen tables to OCCUPY our on government more effectively and select and monitor our representatives and regulators more carefully. Geography, National and World History, Philosophy, World Religions, Cultures and World International Economies need to be studied starting with the young as multimedia stories and games and continuing as life long learning. Current events need to be a community concern. Creative Visionary educational activities should also be maintained to generate creative thinking for problems and ideas we have never seen. Local Non-profit radio and papers should operate in 50-mile area for information sharing and they should include all opinions. (Knowledge is a communication and education battle as well as economic) Making wise local, national, and international choices requires educated, informed, engaged, well-connected communities.
