This Week’s Quote: “It’s impossible to overstate how bonkers the idea of sabotaging cryptography is to people who understand information security…Use deliberately compromised cryptography, that has a back door that only the ‘good guys’ are supposed to have the keys to, and you have effectively no security. You might as well skywrite it as encrypt it with pre-broken, sabotaged encryption.” —Cory Doctorow

This Week’s Quote: “The government enforces a monopoly over the production and distribution of its alleged ‘services’ and brings violence to bear against would-be competitors. In so doing, it reveals the fraud at the heart of its impudent claims and gives sufficient proof that it is not a genuine protector, but a mere protection racket.” —Robert Higgs

This Week’s Quote: “Our trend in copyright law has been to enclose as much as we can; the consequence of this enclosure is a stifling of creativity and innovation.
