On May 11, 2022, the EU will publicize a proposal for a law on mandatory chat control. The European Commission wants all providers of email, chat and messaging services to search for suspicious messages in a fully automated way and forward them to the police in the fight against child pornography.

[...] Similar developments are taking place in the US and the supporting narrative has expanded from domestic terrorism to other illegal content and activity, such as child sexual exploitation and abuse, terrorism, foreign adversaries‚ and attempts to undermine democratic values and institutions.

[...] What most, if not all, of these activities have in common is that you usually won't see the criminals using the same platforms as those of us that want to stay in touch with friends and relatives. They are already conducting their "business" in illegal marketplaces on the Dark Web, or they are using encrypted phone services.

[...] Since client-side scanning technologies may represent the most powerful surveillance system ever imagined, it is imperative that we find a way to make them abuse-resistant and auditable before we decide to start using them. Failures from the past have taught us that it's often the other way around. We learn from our mistakes, but how costly are they?

    Republican voters are not blind to Graham. Most I think would love to replace that backstabber. He did everything he could to sink the President belonging to his own party. Graham is, like most of the high-level GOP, just another member of The Grifters. "Conservative" for show, pro-graft Uniparty member in action.

      Thanks, I guess we've been hoping that the less worrisome scenario was true, Republicans are happy cows eating their propagandafeed. Sadly that seems to not be the case. Republicans know how evil their leaders are and they pretend they are rifhteous because their corrupt pastors scream politics at them instead of guiding people towards the teachings of Jesus.

      Yes, you are the baddies marching anti-democratic fascism across the country while deceiving yourself that you're the moral majority. No, "both sides" is not a valid excuse. Own your fascism, the GOP is no longer hiding it, and only McCain and Romney seem to have enough conscience to care.
