This is about total control and monitoring of population. If DOJ, FBI and other acronyms would actually do their job properly, they'd find a way to catch criminals. Why compromise security and freedom for everyone just because of criminals?

I see the point to an extent. But can help but feel its just an excuse.
Basic human rights to privacy amongst decent normal people which is the majority should always be respected.

I am all up for this.
After it is passed, just sue the CIA, NSA and the FBI for every single encrypted packet of data.

They are not above the law either.

Most do not need conversation to be encrypted. The few that actually do will figure out how to do it themselves. The apps to do so are on the web.

so they ban Huawei for a potential security risk for backdoor access to users data but then want to make it so that end to end encryption is not allowed, essential creating a backdoor to access users data. Please tell me that this is a joke otherwise this is laughable

Encryption is used to secure things. You only secure power. Powerful people are secure.
Sometimes weak people use encryption, that's not good.

It's very much comparable to gun rights.
