Rationale

This page needs a lot of work.

Privacy is a fundamental human right

According to Article 12 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference.

Modern state/corporate surveillance threaten democracy

  • Rapid growth of surveillance state
  • Whistle blowers
  • Social movements
  • Minorities and LGBT

Distributed, encrypted software offers an alternative

Privacy is protected by math, not some “policy.”
