Yes - that's the way it is.

Hasn't it been the case almost since day one of crypto wars to expect 
authorities to limit its use, adjusting prohibitions, warnings, dire 
threats, legislation as new means of crypto are deployed?

And "new" means are continually being developed, and many of them 
quickly expropriated by contracts with authorities.

Coders and developers switch sides from being poor to be rather well 
to do. Quite a few cypherpunks have followed this path, and why not 
"get real," with aging, families, debts and envy of the success of 
those who switch sides, get bought out, sign up for lucrative 
speaking fees, promulgate reasons for being cooperative rather than 
confrontational.

Is there any currently popular crypto/comsec/infosec product not 
subject to this "go along to get along?"

Cybersecurity coupld with cyberfailure are fantastic cash cows, 
golden gooses, gold rushes. Assange has reportedly become a 
millionaire twice over, and a large portion of that is assumed to be 
laundered official money, as tax write-off or simply dirty.

But that is the industry standard of security in all it versions. 
Keep it secret, blow theats and safety at consumers and citizenry.

Smartest cybersecurity developers are working for totalizing "smart" 
to every spot on online and on earth, in every head and home. While 
preaching privacy protection with latest porous prophylactics, once 
called backdoors, confessionals, prayers, trust in deity. Now called 
upgrades and sure-fire, ever better, ways to excuse failure, maintain 
faith in a reputation in a brand.

Built-in failure by the most trusted, surely not that. Send 
conributions here to keep up the fight.

And don't ever go off on your own, experts must review your shit for 
golden nuggets. Do expose your best to conferences, believe in open 
source review, seek investors, crowd-fund, stay fucked.
