If Snowden Is Indeed a Traitor He Betrayed the Cops, Not Us. If He's a Spy, He's Spying for the People, Not the State
There is absolutely no question, mass government surveillance is a global problem. Many say If don't do anything wrong there is nothing to worry about. That's not that simple.
This kind of programs violate our right to privacy and infringe on our rights to freedom of expression adn association. Our students need to know that mass surveillance harm the freedom and openness of the global internet they enjoy today.
And it goes against our most democratic values.
If Edward Snowden hadn't told us the NSA was gathering this evidence, and the DEA was using it, we'd never have known. So, "If Snowden is indeed a traitor he betrayed the cops, not us. If he's a spy, he's spying for the people, not for the prison state..."
