Default Will OpenBSD help "Reset the Net"?

Snowden said adopting encryption was “the first effective step that everyone can take to end mass surveillance … don’t ask for your privacy. Take it back.”

He was interviewed by John Perry Barlow, co-founder of Electronic Frontier Foundation. “I’m afraid we’ve descended to this point,” said Barlow. “But why do animals lick their genitals? Because they can. Why do governments do this? Because they can’t lick their own.”

“They’re licking ours, and taking pictures,” Snowden replied.

It might be cool to send encrypted emails. The trouble is I can't think of anyone I email who would be interested in setting up their end of it.

If everyone would send encrypted emails, then this might also be good step in the elimination of spam.
