Your great grandchildren won’t thank you when the state is all-powerful because we didn’t fight

For years, I’ve watched governments take control of our lives. Their argument is always the same: ‘Fewer costs, greater efficiency.’ But the result is the same, too. Less control by the people, more control by the State — until the individual’s anguishes count for nothing. That is what I consider my duty to resist.  The point of a so-called great family is to protect our freedoms.
Your great grandchildren won’t thank you when the state is all-powerful because we didn’t fight.”

COOK: No one should have to decide between privacy or security. We should be smart enough to do both

APPLE’s Tim Cook: “Do we want our nation to be secure? Of course. No one should have to decide between privacy or security. We should be smart enough to do both. Both of these things are essentially part of the Constitution.”

None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right.

“I want to be absolutely clear that we have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.” “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn’t give it up. We shouldn’t give in to scare-mongering.”

Tim Cook, Apple CEO, September 2014 and 2015
