I've often wondered about this, and I've come to the conclusion that it all comes back to them originating from prude, victorian, no-fun-allowed values.

>If there are encryption keys then those encryption keys have to be put at the disposal of the authorities.

Authorities have the bad habit of changing. Tomorrow there might be someone else at the top who will love all this power given to them. Of course knobhead politicians never think this far because they think themselves untouchable, they unironically believe they will be "in charge" forever.

>allow countries to destabilize

Of course you can never stop development of encryption which is algorithms which is mathematics.
What might happen though, is that governments will forbid all messengers except backdoored ones and you'll be put on a watchlist for not using approved botnet apps.

I share your sentiments.

I find Telegram unethical for marketing itself as software that respects privacy and provides security yet: if one or both users are using the desktop client, there is no end-to-end encryption; if one or both users haven't opted into encryption, there is no end-to-end encryption; group chats cannot be end-to-end encrypted no matter what; and there is no end-to-end encryption by default whatsoever.

I frequently disparage Telegram (1, 2, 3) and even went out of my way to shame them on my website (4).

Nevertheless, getting lains to use the same software is worse than herding cats and Telegram was the only program I could get everyone to agree to use. Also there aren't really any alternatives. I encourage the use of XMPP+OTR on my guide, but there is no working implementation of end-to-end encrypted group chat so the point is dubious.

The instant >>>/cyb/258 happens I will be the first to abandon Telegram.

CBurner is working on a ground up Raspberry Pi system like does the same thing. The only difference is some assembly is required.

Get A Raspberry Pi with a WiFI Adapter.
Install DietPi,
Install a DHCP server,
Install HostAPD,

Bam you have a AP serving IP.

Install DNSMasq and resolve all DNS requests to host,
Install Lighthttpd, set a 302 redirect for everything not the hosts address to it,

bam the users is being requested to login to the network on login,

Install any other server you want and have it referenced on the webpage, congrats you now have something a lot more configurable than the piratebox.

Sure it needs more work, but its not hard and you can service more requests.

this is a response to both of you, but the points are connected so they're kinda mashed together a little.

>>934
We both know Britain once had and the USA now has the largest empire in the world and I wouldn't be surprised if one reason for that is their use of surveillance. See the example in the first article I linked about how a panopticon prison was built in India or how knowledge of local customs was used to exert control in that region.

The panopticon was designed by an Englishman and the United States remains the country with the most active panopticons in a material sense. You can't deny the history of this practice has roots in the English empire but I will give you it was American capitalism that developed the surveillance state of affairs we know today.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panopticon

note by american capitalism I refer to the disaster-based, post-9/11 mode of domination used equally by the state and corporate elites following say, Katrina. Truly the elites of both occupy the same space with congressmen buying stock and shareholders holding public office a but that's all tangential.

>>936
I would implore you to read the articles I've linked and not jump to conclusions such as, this poster is trying to convince you everything can be blamed on white people, a powerful strawman white supremacists use for recruitment. Please note that I said nothing about whiteness in my post and additionally, I did not deny colonialism existed outside of europe. But to simply say "there are empires beside the biggest one" is completely non-sequitur when it comes to a serious analysis of how that empire got to be so big in the first place.

If it sounds like I'm making a lot out of a few words in my post, I would again direct your attention to the two papers with a sum of roughly 125 pages. Please read them before rushing to attack ghosts.

Of course the bluntest reason -why- panopticism would be so prevalent in english empires is that the panopticon was invented by an english man, this answer is incomplete when you consider that many other things were invented by englishmen that we (fortunately) could not give a rat's ass about.

The reason why it's so widespread in these empires is because of how effective it is for imperialism.

But by attempting to negate every aspect of what you think my point is, you've really made it for me - by pointing out several other empires (not all ofc, as I cannot say I am well informed on every single country or even the ones you listed) that have panopticons you've given me even more examples of the panopticon used to colonize. I can only thank you for that.

The British had the most powerful empire but amazingly they where also one of the "better" imperial overlords. surveillance is a thing imperials did, but that dose not explain the other nations that do engage in this behavior that where not imperials.

The elites are the ones pushing for control and surveillance, what we see is this is happening with nations that have very strong elites. Not just a colonial history.

Except for their charming habit of creating nation-states and other areas of jurisdiction by using straightedges on maps, instead of taking into account the local where ethnic groups actually lived. Do you have any idea how many civil wars in Africa or the Middle East happened, and are still happening, because Britain basically put two or more powerful rival ethnic groups within the same borders?

Japan is fucked. They are facing an imminent demographic nightmare. They have a rapidly aging population.

Even the old-fashioned salaryman/housewife-combo situation that allowed for couples to have kids is vanishing fast.

Japan is going to either have to enact and enforce strong labour laws that prevent corporations from fucking over young employees, or they're going to have to allow mass immigration to handle more-physical jobs that an aging native workforce can't handle anymore, or they're going to go nuts on an "automate all the things and hope to hell automation gets good enough, fast enough" plan.
