Re: I think the real reason PGP succeeded...

As an Englishman living abroad I can already use the identity card of my adopted country, via a reader, to securely send and receive information with governments and banks.

You can challenge the level of security but there are no current reports of the security being broken. So one arm of government loves encryption while another hates it :-)
