We have all seen the debate that has been going on with apple and the government and the question whether the government should be allowed to view encrypted messages. What do you all think?

It's important for any type of government-based system to be fully aware of civilian activity, even if it violates privacy, because it can lead to vital information concerning possible terrorism, crimes, or anarchy. Any level of discord can be prevented by government officials simply observing how and when people are conversing through e-mail or text. Of course, not every event can be stopped as craftier individuals can just converse without the need of an electronic device. Therefore, using encrypted messages to communicate should be a sacrifice of a right of privacy as part of an exchange of service.
