RIP Chester Nez
The last of the code talkers has died, taking with him the last vestige of honor in the field of cryptography.
Meanwhile, all the techie fanboys
are delusionally trusting in Our Lord And Savior Google Alleluia Amen!!!!! More bits! More bits! More bits! If we can only get more bits, we can be absolutely breakproof! NSA won't be able to tell what we're doing!
Except that NSA designed the fucking algorithm, you fucking fools.
You may be clever, and your machines may be clever, but NSA has thousands of equally clever coders and billions of dollars. You think that you're David and NSA is Goliath, but David wasn't using a slingshot bought from Goliath Armaments LLC. He made his own.
Keeping secrets is a HUMAN business, a deeply PHYSICAL business, and the code talkers were using a HUMAN language plus HUMAN adaptability plus HUMAN honor to defeat the dishonorable Japs.
If you want a real man
, a man of honor, you want a Plains Indian. Unfortunately they're quickly going extinct, because the habitat for honor has been destroyed.
