    Read. Discuss. I say no. This was in Europe. How about here?

    Either phones are secure or they are not. Any "back door" for Law Enforcement will be compromised in fairly short order.

    With all of the Deep State crap going on, is this a serious question?

    More importantly, who's determining who's a "dissident?"

    And, no. No backdoors for anyone. If the phone providers are going to cave and provide backdoors they should publicly state so on their T&Cs and let the customers decide whether they want to use that company's product.

    Why is that important? A dissident is just somebody who opposes the official policy of the state. Usually, this term is used to refer to dissidents only in authoritarian countries. NSO "has been enmeshed in controversy" for providing authoritarian governments with the means to spy on dissidents.

    February 1, 2021. Newly elected President Michael Bloomberg dies from a massive brain aneurysm. Vice President Stacey Abrams assumes the presidency. She dissolves the Congress and stacks the Supreme Court with Ruth Bader Ginsberg's relatives. She unilaterally declares all firearms, bibles and country music to be illegal. Supporters of former President Trump rise up in protest. She declares all Trump supporters to be enemies of the state.

    Yeah, I know. It's silly absurd. So is a lot of stuff that goes on in this country.
