There is certainly no question that strong end-to-end encryption can be 
done well by persons having sufficient
knowledge in crypto. However the mass of the common people would have to 
trust the opinions or certifications
of some institutional bodies, whether governmental or not, and let the 
processing be done accordingly, whereby
various software, hardware and institutional bodies are involved, the 
trustworthiness of all of them have to be
assumed very much like in religions. That's a fundamentally unsolvable 
problem of privacy and security IMHO.
