US Attorney claims in letter to judge that FBI has been able to break and download encrypted messages from Signal and Whatsapp. If true, this has huge implications for journalists and activists. Any response, and ?

I became a socialist like most from experiencing rank inequality as I was born in a slum that circled the coal mine where my dad worked-endured being made a child labourer at the age of 7, ate from rubbish bins & on my 18th birthday joined the RAF and fought Hitler

This feels like a turning point in this country. One of the truly vile moments in history which, when read about years later, elicit cries of "How could people watch this happen? How could anyone not *see* where all this was heading, and stop it?"

Why are these stories not on the front page of every paper, every day these atrocities happen in our country? Why are these stories not at the top of every newscast? Our govt is literally taking kids to showers, and their parents don’t see them again. WAKE UP.
