http://prism-break.org/ (from the Snowden fan club)

I am amazed at the contortions some people around here are going through to defend the corporate mercenary police-state that is rising up. What part of due process, of the right to privacy, of simple human freedom do you misunderstand?

Corporate contractors, with unfettered access to all coms data is a huge issue, and you are blinded by the shock-and-awe of the "war on terror", what ever that is, and somehow twist your mind into thinking that this is all good?,. and the whistle-blower is the problem?!? WTF?

The guy pointing to the problem IS NOT THE PROBLEM!

The secrete programs cooked up by corporate/military contractors to manipulate and control data and communications, to log and process interactions, to run algorithms designed to locate thought-crime (and manipulate markets?) is the issue.

Pointing to the brave thoughtful person who risks it all to show the truth and screaming 'traitor', and 'terrorist', and naming him a 'commie', and all the other mindless nonsense I have seen spewed about this site, is a clear indication that some people here have lost all critical perspective on democracy, freedom, and a civil society.

4. and when Rosa Parks sat in the front of the bus she was a criminal?

 

Nelson Mandela a criminal? Mahatma Gandhi and his salt tax revolt, they where criminals? Boston Tea Party? Criminal tax evaders??

It is easy for the corporate/military to make laws,. sure Hitler made all his actions legal too,. is that your only standard, whatever is enacted in a law is just and right???

Justice and rightness are often outlawed when governments are corrupted. The current corporate military state we live in is just that.

7. Soldiers ended the First World War by CRIMINALLY disobeying lawful orders from their officers

They could have all been shot on the spot for mutiny. And they would have been but there were too many of them.

9. Rosa Parks didn't flee to China. She stood up to justice and took jail time. THAT'S a hero.

12. Bradley Manning never got to speak his case to the people,.

 

he is in prison for life, and the corporate/military is looking to have him murdered by the corporate/state.

I do not see Snowden as a coward, he was able to make his case, and still may have more to say, at least he will still be able to, should the need arise. Being murdered by your oppressors is not brave, it proves no point.

13. The PRISON TIME was the heroic bit?


Oh. I thought it was not being told to give up her seat.

I suppose prison just makes you heroic.

Are all those rapists and murders in prison heroic, then?

Gosh. I'm going to have to rip up my ENTIRE PHILOSOPHY on heroism.
