What Kurt is claiming might be true but I see some credibility issues as well. If a person cries wolf a few times, and they turn out to be false, then who's gonna believe you when you cry wolf again and it is true. "....and later deleted his tweets claiming this....", Ahhh. damn but that really despicable, trying to un-say what has been said.
Actually I was taught that there were certain things that 'authority figures' couldn't order me to do. Not to reflexively obey. No Pavlovian conditioning please. As for parents teaching their children important life-skills.. All too often the parents don't have the skills themselves so they can't pass it on to their children.
Utterly futile even if you do succeed in getting backdoor legislation Mr Cy. People who are serious about their privacy will look to 3rd party encryption apps for their cellphones. Encrypt while in transit. Encrypt while at rest. Manage you own keys.
