They can promise strong encryption. They just need to figure out how they can provide us plain text. – FBI General Counsel Valerie Caproni, September 27, 2010
[W]e’re in favor of strong encryption, robust encryption. The country needs it, industry needs it. We just want to make sure we have a trap door and key under some judge’s authority where we can get there if somebody is planning a crime. – FBI Director Louis Freeh, May 11, 1995

RT, an English-language news outlet in Russia, reports that a top official with the Russian government has announced that a law will be passed banning Bitcoin’s exchange into real money by next spring because of Bitcoin’s use by criminals and terrorists.
Deputy Finance Minister Aleksey Moiseev said to journalists in Moscow:
“People can play with their chips, and they can call them money, but they can’t use these surrogate currencies as tender. We will discuss this law in the current session of parliament, and possibly even pass it then, or at the very latest by spring next year. We are currently dealing with comments from the law enforcement agencies, about the specifics of legal measures, and we will take their remarks into account. But the overall concept of the law is set in stone.”
While the draft of the proposed legislation has not been published, officials state they will open criminal proceedings against people who mint digital currency as well as those who use it for transactions. Russia’s financial ministry has also asked regulators to ban access to exchanges and online shops that accept Bitcoin, reports RT.

RT talks to Cody Wilson, the creator of the 3D-printed firearm dubbed “The Liberator”.
When asked why he supports decentralized power after all the “progress” society has made from tribal societies to federal power, Wilson responds:
I’m seeing nothing but, from my perspective, a train in perpetual derailment, retrograde abuses of liberties, in that there is no concept the real human rights. It’s just something we use to go like bomb Iraq, or take over a country or assert our economic dominance. I’m seeing a slide toward barbarism, not toward civilization that you’re there you’re implying. I’m doing everything I can to maintain a distance that separates us and keep our humanity as individuals.
