Letter to Richard Stallman – Why complicate things?

Hi Richard!

My name is Martin Gustavsson and I work daily for peace.

I found out about you not so long ago and I must say I am grateful for that. I feel you are a great guy, when watching and reading things about you. Everyone should take a look, in my opinion, but think for themselves openly and be sceptic and meditate often.

First I tried Protonmail to encrypt. Nice and easy. Looks great and feels great, but you did not want to use their scripts in order to read what I sent because you do not want to use non-safe Javascript, and to be honest the guys in Cern in Switzerland could be corrupted spies too. Very true.

So finally I learned how to connect my Gmail with Thunderbird. Thanks. Now I have downloaded Enigmail, but still have not found out how to use it. It does not seem to be able to figure out what encryption key to use automatically. I get a list of about ten suggestions when adding your adress. Seems a bit strange to me.

I tried, by the way, to contact Riseup through diasporing.ch for an account. Did not work AND Riseup is based in the USA, a country controlled by the military industrial complex AND this when the US citizens actually could have chosen other more peaceful alternatives. Most decided to vote for …

Now to something more positive! UK is looking more promising with Brexit and Corbyn rising. A peaceful guy. Peaceful politicians in the US and UK could MAYBE form a Rainbow coalition take the power, and vote for peace and uphold UN resolutions in the future?

Another nice thing. Gmail works, also with the add-on NoScript activated. Why is Gmail able to function without scripts, but no company claiming to be one of the good GPL-guys can give them any competition at all? I finally gave up and meditated and finally I realized:

Why not use WordPress.com directly and openly?

It has advantages. I can verify from any terminal that the message I have sent to anyones blog is actually there and not lost on the way. It works with NoScript activated.

Secondly, If anyone answers, they can see that I have read it, when it has been approved and published from any anonymous terminal without login, without scripts.

It is a bit like when you suggested once that there should be no passwords, if I remeber correctly. Internet is not safe for normal people anyway, so why pretend that it is with encryption etc.?

There are trojan horses and who is going through all the code before compiling and running them all? Would it even help?

So. A small suggestion to help newbees:

https://emailselfdefense.fsf.org/en/

Step 0.a Configure your webmail to IMAP and disable POP, unless you want to download all your e-mails to your own computer when starting Thunderbird! 🙂

I guess “1.a Installing Wizard” should be “1.a Start Thunderbird and add the Enigmail add-on”

I understand why not to trust scripts, but I also have a problem trusting the open encryption key system. I do not understad how it can be safe at all. I mean should not keys be secret and hidden? …or should you not at least have some kind of personal login code given in real life?

It might intrest you that there is a popular Telegram-app out there now, but no executable file available to download in the Linux repository. I am not sure why not? Maybe you can explain it to me and everyone else?

And by the way, I love you as a person and would like you to have at least one child somehow and spread your great genes to coming generations.

Best regards
