Edward Snowden And The Security State

Image

Apart from the leaks themselves, Edward Snowden has revealed how the US government imposes confidentiality in the performance of spying on us.

Edward Snowden has given up nearly everything in his former pleasant life; so that we could know at least some of the way in which the US government is gathering information on us.

So, what will become of him, well, it’s doubtless that they will kill him, even though the current government has determined that it’s okay to kill US nationals unaccompanied by trial as long as they cite national self-defence, but Edward Snowden will front persistent pursuit and prosecution, for the foreseeable time ahead.

Edward Snowden is one of a long line of whistleblowers, notifying the US public about the NSA’s capabilities.  The NSA has an unlimited hunger for scrutiny and, has come predominately unmoored from any notable omissions or boundaries, but it’s Edward Snowden’s disclosure that appears to have kicked off an important and extensive discussion about the suitable boundaries of the US government’s ability to surveillance its inhabitants.

What is it about Edward Snowden’s revelation that is so distinctive?  It’s not the contents of the leak itself, for the details that Edward Snowden disclosed is reasonably small.

What made Edward Snowden’s revelation different and, exciting, was its uniqueness.  By notifying the public, through the newspaper, of a particular program and, its widely used commercial targets like Facebook and Google, he has established that the security state that lives inside the United States continues to grow.

The spread of information from WikiLeaks and, the cyberpunk collective Anonymous has revealed that anonymity can be a powerful implement in going against government confidentiality.

Nevertheless, Snowden was aware, given his familiarity with the work of his past employers, that after disclosing the Prism document, he would be able to run, but not hide, but he did it anyhow.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
