This doesn't help my theory that half of Wilders are being profiled as terrorist.
While these were nice reads, the implications are very frustrating for a fellow activist of sorts! It actually makes me think along the same lines of "nervousness" while using TOR. Its a big reason for why I go to a vpn chain before TOR.
I just hate the notion that you would only want to be "encrypted" if you are hiding criminal activity. All I can say is that if they take all the time needed to "get to me" somehow, they are really going to be disappointed with what they find. I just want to be left alone and remain private. Is that really so much to ask
He seems to be saying to encrypt email means you have something to hide, IMHO not worthy of someone who has so much education.
It's a very practical concern. Nobody must have tools for resisting state power
This is worrisome. I have to wonder about this as well.
Having a book is illegal? The quoted part of the statement could mean anything. It described most factories, businesses, etc. Being internally organized is criminal? Unless Spain has some law that expressly bans these things, this looks to be all insinuation and innuendo.
Who said anything of having so much education?
Born in the town of Alora Malaga 3 agostro 1962, Gómez Bermúdez became a judge, as some members of his family did , while only 24, and in 1989 he was appointed magistrate.
But there are also occasional shadows, since his appointment as Presdiente of the Criminal Division of the National Court which was in check for years in his career. Furthermore, his second wife, Elisa Beni, was dismissed from her post as Director of Communications of the Court of Madrid after writing "Loneliness of the Judge", a book that raised a stir.
This is starting to sound like a scene from a soap opera.

That's almost an incentive to open an account with them. If for no other reason, just make it clear what I think of their power and their abuse of it.
This is all so silly. I'm sure that Riseup runs very-well-secured email services. But by no means does it provide "secure" email services like CounterMail or ProtonMail (or those promised by the Dark Mail Alliance). Riseup does run Tor relays and a Mixmaster remailer, but that's totally separate from their old-school email services.
I find it hard to believe that using a "secure" e-mail is a crime. If that's a crime, where does hosting your own stand?
I suppose that it depends on where you host it. If it's easy to find, snoop and take down, no problem. If it takes some work to compromise, you're obviously a terrorist
Lol, based on this I would definitely be profiled as a terrorist or criminal.
They will be so disappointed when they spend all that money trying to unravel the web ive made. My secret spaghetti recipe needs to be protected.
Waiting for the US to go down similar lines; if you encrypt and protect data then warrantless searches become legal.
If using encryption and secure e-mail makes you a terrorist or a criminal, I can only imagine what using and modifying an OS so that it doesn't store usage tracks would make you. Push it far enough and they could label you the Anti-Christ, except that they've already taken that role.
Spanish law is based on the Napoleonic Code. There is a presumption of guilt, not of innocence. That is, defendants must prove beyond reasonable doubt that they are innocent. Even US law seems to be moving that way.
Maybe. In the US, I see it different. What is legitimate or allowed depends on your net worth. What's criminal for you or me is allowed for the rich. In the US "justice" is a commodity, a purchased product. Forensics has become evidence for sale. It's all about the money, how much can you give the state. If you can't afford it, there's no justice. I'd wager that in Spain, corporations can use "secure" e-mail and strong without being labelled as criminal.
Yes, no doubt.
I just wrote about this issue on the cypherpunks list, in reference to
Stallman opines therein:
| Above all, we need a state in order to have democracy, which
| is the system by which the many non-rich [aka beta, weak,
| clueless, stupid, etc] join together to overcome the power
| of the rich [aka alpha, powerful, skilled, smart, etc] and
| thus deny them control over society.
I agree, but only provisionally, and only if the alphas don't control the state. However, alphas typically do end up controlling the state, and that's the fatal defect. What's needed long term is conversion of betas into gammas. With enough gammas, the state will arguably wither away. But I'll be dead long before then, so I focus on the process.
I think using secure or encrypted email, encrypting your OS or sensitive files etc from outside snooping (in my case the NSA here in America), maybe people all over the world are beginning to be fed up with their governments snooping on them. They're only elected officials, not rulers.
David Cameron pledges to target encrypted messaging after Paris attacks
Right. There is clearly no right to privacy in the UK.
This is probably just showing in which direction Obama - Cameron discussion on Thursday will go. Prohibiting encryption for common people so government can control us. "Safety" before liberty...
Although the USA is headed that way, its going to take quite awhile before that would have much chance of passing in the states. The newly seated congress is not going to put that on the desk of POTUS anytime soon. The large corporations will not easily allow for "security services" to be able to view their journals. I would be surprised that France's companies might consider it. Just can't see it happening.
In Gov't controlled schemes the "abuse" becomes reality because eventually someone that can "push a button" (eavesdropping where they shouldn't) will do so. Its human nature and frankly we all know it to be true. Why deny it?
