""Privacy is ultimately about liberty while surveillance is
always about control"
"Good morning my relations. Today is not such a great day. In
the United States the Obama administration is actively seeking a
new law to legally mandate the forced introduction of insecure back
doors and support for mass surveillance into all communication
systems. Specifically targeted are Internet VoIP and messaging
"Speaking on behalf of the GNU Telephony project, we do intend
to openly defy such a law should it actually come to pass, so I
want to be very clear on this statement. It is not simply that we
will choose to publicly defy the imposition of such an illegitimate
law, but that we will explicitly continue to publicly develop and
distribute free software (that is software that offers the freedom
to use, inspect, and modify) enabling secure peer-to-peer
communication privacy through encryption that is made available
directly to anyone worldwide. Clearly such software is especially
needed in those places, such as in the United States, where basic
human freedoms and dignity seem most threatened."
