So… basically I learned that other people hate the NSA, and to grow a beard lol
You’re halfway home.
You know what rubs me the wrong way? The fact that SELinux was developed by the NSA.
So was TOR. The internet was a darpa project. Being open is a bigger advantage than you might think. The NSA has their fingers in everything anyway: Windows, Apple, Cisco, RSA, various chipsets… everything. Open-source is your best bet.
