I don’t think my essay can reasonably be taken as calling for an end to LE. Saying it is a bad idea in the title is provactive, for sure… as is all reasonably good opinion writing. There’s a limit to that for sure. Saying something false for the sake of being provocative is over the line… Saying LE is a bad idea is simply an opinion.
I agree with the assertion that security has to come first and be baked in… I just think that we have extract ourselves from our technical perspectives and understand the motives behind the choices business people make… The central point of my essay is that LE fosters a “fire and forget” complacency.
