    It's commonly ignored, especially by Americans, that the Internet belongs (in some moral sense) to the World. If it's going to be truly secure (really truly) for X, it must be just as secure for X'.

    In particular, we know a lot now about the NSA's capabilities, and some about the capabilities of its allies. But we know relatively little about China's MSS, and its capabilities. We don't really know what Mevade is up to. Could it (and other botnets) be working with the KGB, as the Triads work with MSS?

    What we need here is an Internet that's secure against all of them (even the ones that we don't know about). That's nontrivial, but it's worth the effort :)
