The way we communicate is what’s at risk. Who has control of a person’s lifetime communications, relationships, financial and health records?
In an idea situation the government should have control.
But what if the government is not honest?
What if the government lies to the people?
At this point, screw the data, the public wants to know what and who has been using the data for what reasons.
Questions like, has this data been used to change the outcome of elections?
The last American to have this type of government inside information that I can think of was Harry D. White.
And he died of a heart attack when he was in perfect health a day before he was to testify.
I saw Mr. White as an American Hero. The government claimed he was a trader and a spy. The most successful spy ever against the United States of America.
That was until two years ago and books are now being written about Mr. White and the government is now beginning to change its story. Mr. White is no longer a big FBI, CIA success story and may not have even been a spy.
Mr. Snowden did the right thing by going to Russia. I do not think he will live long in the hands of the US Government.
If all the secrets about the government dealings were known by the people that have been monetary affected by the actions of the government. I think the lawsuits would be larger than the national debt.
The internet may just become the new Gnostic God of our time. Snowden may be its first disciple.
Com’on now, think about it.
Happy New Year to everyone.
