The Thing That Bothers Me Most About The Snowden Revelations…
…isn’t that the NSA is breaking laws and violating the privacy of nearly every person on the planet.
It’s not that I think Snowden is a traitor (I don’t).
It’s that Snowden was far from being the only one who knew what the NSA was doing, yet all but one did nothing.
It’s that the American public at large now knows what the NSA is doing, and yet do nothing.
It’s that brave citizens who report on government wrongdoings are being harassed, persecuted, and threatened with prosecution by the American government and yet the American people at large do nothing.
It’s that the American government is destroying liberty at an alarming rate, and yet the American people at large simply don’t care.
When did liberty become a cause so unworthy of our attention?
