let me start by saying: Thanks! To Edward Snowden and all investigative journalists that took the risk to help him.
Thanks to all involved.
Before-Snowden – people using the internet – could not imagine that governments was looking over their sholder 24-7 and recording every button they press.
Now Snowden has delivered the proof on the encrypted laptops he gave out to several Journalists – many of them too afraid to touch the material.
Without Snowden – the thought – that all our communications is recorded – maybe even FOREVER – and analyzed to build as he said “perfect histories” of people – of course – in order to track and hunt dissidents like the Nazis did with the Jews.
It also shows how corrupt and rotten to the core many of the so called democratic institutions – the beacon of civilization – the USA and other Western Nations – have become.
They are (largely digital finance) dictatorships with democratic painting.
Snowdens “left and right converge to authoritarianism” seems to give proof to that.
Shocking shocking shocking – what comes after democracy? More dictatorship?
Does not sound like a step forward to me.
As you can see with Assange now in held in prison and treated and probably tortured like a “terrorist” without ever planting a bomb shows the plot – label anyone against “the system” a terrorist – human rights do not apply to terrorists.
“Would US-gov (John Kerry (Skull and Bones 1966)) have grounded my passport in Ecuador – the CIA would have it much easier to catch me – but they grounded me in Moscow, Russia.
So Russia had the unique opportunity to do the right thing by doing nothing”
