Apple to join the "Trustworthy Computing" dark side?

Someone who's been using Apple computers about as long as my dad has — since 1979 (I'm a newcomer, having bought my first Apple in 1984) — reviews what's known about Apple's plans for the Intel platform and finds evidence that they're planning to include Trustworthy Computing in the MacOS. He says that if that happens, he'll not only stop being an Apple customer, he might even have his Apple tattoo removed.

I agree with his concerns. And although it would break my heart to give up the Mac, I simply refuse to give even Apple the ability to control how and when I can read my own data.
