Ever notice that everything for the "public good" always ends with more power for the government and more capability for their intrusion into the lives of citizens? Ayn Rand saw it coming.
Unbreakable encryption poses a threat to public safety that only legislation may be able to address, according to Deputy Atty. Gen. Rod Rosenstein. Strong encryption on smartphones that can't be cracked may call for laws restricting its use, Rosenstein said at a security conference in Utah.
No. Not it doesn't. At all. It doesn't even remotely pose a "threat" to public safety. Quite the contrary, it protects the public.

Legislation on encryption ‘may be necessary,’ deputy attorney general warns

We encourage all Randians to Go Galt, and thus remove their parasitical selves from decent society.

However, they won't.

First, they don't have any miracle technology that Rand had to imagine to dream up to make her kook society actually work. Nor was it ever explained who would clean the toilets in the land of capitalist heroes who spent their days dreaming up miracle alloys.

Second, the Randians know nobody would miss them. Since they offer nothing to society, everyone would be happy to see them go. And then when they had to come crawling back, nobody would welcome them.

We can see the deception being played on the American people, but the millions of dupes never catch on. Big Government LOVES a dumbed down populace.

Notice how Trump's administration is doing exactly as W's and Big Ears' administrations did. New boss same as the old boss....and round and round we go...and dupes still can't figure it out.

^^^ perfect example of one who can't see the deception being played on him/her.

Hopefully it's a phase.

Hopefully I will be dead when Rome falls...because it will.

Good luck to my kids.

Tearing down and vandalizing Columbus statues. This stupid shit is off the rails. The crazies are violating the will of the people and doubled down on their mental illness when Trump won.

It will be eye opening when the Progs turn on their own and begin the fast march towards the USSR and Venezuela.

The idiotic progressive tactic of calling producers "parasites" and parasites "producers". It's weak and transparent. Especially since mammaries has been using it non-stop for about 5 years now.

Again - pretending those that produce offer "nothing" while pretending those that actually offer nothing are the one's driving society.

Mammaries is so desperate to not only keep the government gravy train flowing in her direction but also to convince people she is actually worth something.

A bust of Lincoln was vandalized, WTF?

Do those who call the American flag racist realize it flew over the armies that ended slavery? I doubt they do considering that ANTIFA comes from our public schools.

Ok then. No help for the Houston area in their time of need because we don't want more power for the government

The Atlas Shrugged nonsense ended 5 years ago. The movies bombed. The public shrugged because Ayn Rand had nothing to say and the book is just another $.50 yard sale paper weight. Like the Saw Al Inski meme. Nobody cares because no one has ever heard of either of them.

This infantile twat is likely unfamiliar with Ayn Rand...or even Dick and Jane.

Why are you still here? Why haven't you Gone Galt? Why haven't any of the self-proclaimed tough guy independents left?

Oh, that's right. You all depend entirely on your precious gubmint subsidies. Like all the Randroids, and like Rand herself, you can't survive without them. Even a team of Clydesdales couldn't pull a conservative off of the gubmint teat.
