Brilliant point about governments persuing synchronised backdoor policies.
This implies that to get one significant government to not implement
backdoor legislation should force the rest to abandon that strategy.
Another idea: governments require secure comms too - if not more so than
individuals. Look at tor. Tor only works if anyone can use it. If only the
government could use tor, any tor use would obviously be government.
Perhaps this is an argument for crypto that even the government can accept?
