"With Treacherous Computing, MS may have the means to send Non-Criticism Enforcement goons straight to your house"
As I read it, TC gives MS the means to retroactively find and obfuscate the decryption keys of all your criticism (or anything other files coming from your computer) from everyone's computer, possibly combined with aggressive mandatory deletion of local copies.
Sending goons to your house is so 20th-century. It's too late then anyway--the criticism in your house isn't what MS customers are reading--they're reading copies of your criticism on web sites and USENET. In the 21st century, MS will be able to send robogoons to everyone who might read your criticism.
