Bad guys want to take things from you. Bad guys don't care about laws,
while you and I do. Bad guys are generally stupid, and unable to come
up with these things on their own. Contrariwise, they are also very
resourceful, and will always find ways to use these things against

Yet, these things almost always tend to be used by bad guys more than

ways around what you think will keep you hidden or protected from bad
laws (remember the resourcefulness of the bad guys?--yup).
