Some people are trying to recreate the old way of doing things in the "new normal". There are times where vision is important. There re many times, though, where the information is the important part, and that generally doesn't need a webcam.
I keep thinking about the world's best buggy-whip manufacturer. Yes, there's a need for the product. No, Zoom doesn't fall into that verging-on-obsolete category. But I think we're seeing a lot of hype and people playing with new toys. The novelty will wear off and it will be a tool, just not as high-profile as now.
Let's have some brakes applied.

"no American should want a device that becomes a safe haven for criminality."
I am an American. My house has walls that protect against outside eyes. My car has a gas pedal, which (on occasion) has led to speeding.
Do I want both of those? Yes, I do. Do I consider myself a criminal? No I don't. Does the government think I'm a criminal? I'll let you know.
In my mind, the tool - whether a gas pedal or encryption - is not criminal in and of itself. Its use is what determines that.
El Reg's sub-hed says "Redmond suggests nuking 'profanity, geopolitical, diversity' terms from browser source"
Isn't the concept of "nuking" prejudiced against second- and third-world countries that don't have nuclear weapons?
And I am obligated to quote: "Sufficiently advanced political correctness is indistinguishable from sarcasm".
