My impression is that NSA has set up a sort of mirror internet;
presumably they would simply incorporate additional encryption into that.
In any event we do want to have easy world wide communication, not
necessarily all heavily encrypted. More than anything else, we need to
get the wolves out of the hen house; if billions are being spend on
signals intelligence maybe its time to negotiate an end to the cyberwar.
