I just watched the movie “The Dissident” (currently available at 3sat in DE/AT/CH).

It is frightening how brutally regime critics are treated in (many) parts of the world. The USA is not a good role model (think about Assange) as far as democratic values are concerned, but murder is a next level.

And at the same time, the Kashoggi case shows that you should be extremely suspicious of your technology in such cases; you never know if someone is listening and has access to your device. What good is end-to-end encryption if the cell phone itself has been hacked?
