And rightly so. With the new NSA capabilities going into
place and the atmosphere around the world, you are
absolutely not safe in your privacy if it is possible
for anyone to acquire your keys or decrypt your files
without stealing your computer and beating or threatening
the password out of you.

I include various State's laws seizures and court orders
under the classification of 'stealing and threatening'.
