FBI vs. Apple: Is Liberty At Stake?

The FBI wants Apple to create software that will allow the Feds to break into the latest iPhones. Ironically, Apple upgraded its iPhone encryption as a result of the Snowden revelations about government spying on innocent Americans. The pretext for the government’s demand is that the San Bernardino attackers used iPhones and the FBI needs to see their data. The mainstream media, as usual, takes the side of government and along with officials like Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) is demonizing Apple for resisting what amounts to forced conscription of Apple engineers for the US government. What is really at stake? Another government grab at our Constitutional liberties under the guise of “keeping us safe.” How many terrorist plots has the FBI foiled through the use of surveillance on the rest of us? Zero.

  1. I despise big business every bit as much as I despise the state but, Marx help me, big business is right this time.

    Never thought I’d say that. Sh*t, I guess you libertarian bastards are rubbing off on me a little bit.

    1. Haha that’s a rare statement indeed!

      But I can’t say I’ve never had a bit of leftism rub off on me, so we’re even.

  2. Like most of the commentaries even Dr. Paul says, “dead terrorist”. When was there a trial and conviction? Is is enough for government to declare you guilty and then kill you to settle the matter? I guess so, it worked with Oswald.
