"The assault on the Capitol last week was more than a mob scene of trespassing and looting and destruction and desecration. It was an attack... on the Constitution itself, on the principles the country was founded on. Sure, they displayed Confederate flags and broke doors and windows and attempted to locate and kidnap congressional leaders and the vice president... If we let them, we won't have a country to love anymore, because they will have hated it out of existence."
Never in my life would I have expected to see a sitting US President impeached twice.
And never in my wildest dreams would I expect it on a one-term president.
While it's disgusting to see people claiming that the recent events in DC are in any way comparable to the horrific events of 9/11, what's equally disturbing is how many people seem to be cool with the idea of communication backdoors so long as it's against those bad people. It's like they never heard Snowden's whistle, or have selectively forgotten how everyone's civil liberties have been under attack in the name of "security" that never comes
@Tutanota forced to install backdoor on at least one account by German court
This does not bode well for anyone using similar services.
This just goes to show, the only security you can trust is your own.
AP photographers captured a world beset by every sort of catastrophe in 2020. But there were also scenes of joy. And hope.
Watch more from the @AP's photos of the year:

pandemic • small correction
I didn't check all the numbers for this, and I now realise that France may not have been the highest *per capita* that day – purely because there are several smaller European countries like Belgium and Switzerland which have a disproportionately high number of infections.
pandemic • numbers • frustration
On November 11th, France reported 86,852 new coronavirus cases – the second highest infection rate in the world that day, second only to the *entire* USA. The highest per capita.
More infections in one day than Kenya, Vietnam, Nigeria, and South Korea have reported in total. Taiwan has had only 589 confirmed cases in total during the entire pandemic. Tanzania has had no new cases at all in the past 7 days.
India is the second worst affected country after the USA, but India has a population of 1.38 billion. The USA contains only 331 million people. And yet, the USA still has the higher number of infections and roughly twice the death toll.
Rich western countries need to learn that their precious economies will not fix this. What's the point in placing such worship on your country's wealth if you can't even care for your people?
