I hope Apple pulls out of Australia for being unable to comply, because that seems like the only hope we have for the government to reconsider.

i even wrote a comment to the government about why this is a bad idea. If labour actually passes this im going to be mad.

mad enough to leave the country even. fuck this shit, im not tryna get into security in a country cyber-security *cannot* exist, by law!


@y0x3y I'm keeping an eye out in New Zealand, but so far they appear to be sensible despite also being 5 eyes.
