how do you figure? Unless they plan on banning any form encryption(NOT LIKELY), it is too easy to defeat these black boxes.
and you think the government couldnt just get the records from your end or the destination end? encryption is useless in the day and age that the NSA needs simply send a "national security" letter to the destination website, or pull the "terrorist" card on you and seize your computer for the encryption keys.
You mean reality? Since all those things have already happened and happen every day? Seriously, it's getting tiresome for people in denial to keep claiming that anyone that actually follows the news and knows what's going on is a conspiracy theorist.
Do you HONESTLY believe that the government doesn't do these things? Stop fooling yourself.
