How the 1st and 5th Amendment constitutionally guards your rights to use cryptography | Phosphorus Five

I spoke with a EU lawyer just now in fact, and he claimed all civilised constitutions, in both the EU and the USA, ensures your rights to privacy, and hence use cryptography. This made me think, and I realised he is in fact right. If you take the American constitution as an example for instance, then by combining the 1st Amendment, which is the Freedom of Speech amendment, with the 5th Amendment, which is the right to keep silent, then the combined results of these two Amendments, actually becomes, to quote the American Constitution; “Your God given right to use cryptography!”
