I'm not saying the government has never done it in targeted situations. But doing it on a widespread basis would never work. And would be ridiculously inefficient compared to the means already at their disposal.
It is happening (backdoor requirements), it was classified until leaked, it is wide spread.

Those are facts you can't dispute.
