yo french kev what say you about this whole snowden fiasco ?
You know, I don’t know enough about him to make an accurate statement. He could have alterior motives for doing what he did. However, if he really blew the whistle for the ONLY purpose of showing us on a grand scale that our liberties are being violated, I think he’s the fucking man and deserves a place in heaven.
Who knows though, he could be a spy for the Chinese and did this shit cause his cover was blown and he is depending on public support to save his own ass. That’s another posibility.
Overall I think it’s a good thing we know without a doubt that our government spies on innocent people without probable cause. A court that issues a warrant on 120 million people is not a real court.
Now the next challenge is to stop people from thinking this:
“They can go through my phone recorda because I have nothing to hide,”
and get them to understand that it doesn’t matter if you’re a criminal or not, the government is not exempt from the 4th amendment. On the contrary, the 4th amendment is there for that very fucking reason. So that they won’t go through our shit for no reason.
Understand that our security isn’t the cause of this constitutional violation. This is going to be used to neutralize future political oponents, and to get direct consumer report in order to further control the stock market. They could care less about your security. They love terrorist attacks, it gives them more leeway to do whatever they want.
