    Pre-warning, the above video has PG-13 language, so if that offends you, you might want to skip it. The HBO series Last Week Tonight wth John Oliver recently tackled the FBI vs Apple encryption issue dominating the headlines right now.

    Oliver does a good job of explaining many of the complications surrounding this issue, and of course, his satirical humor makes it a funny lesson as well. Check out the video and let us know what you think of Oliver's perspective.

    I just watched that episode. His position would have been even stronger if he'd noted the folly in trusting the government to keep a backdoor out of the hands of miscreants, given recent successful hacking attacks on government databases.
