STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

Edward Snowden Invokes Martin Luther King To Defend Whistleblowing

Edward Snowden Invokes Martin Luther King To Defend Whistleblowing

“Martin Luther King brought forth this brand of civil disobedience . . . to create change that could not be ignored”

Edward Snowden on Thursday invoked Martin Luther King Jr.’s nonviolent civil disobedience to condemn the U.S. for how it treats whistleblowers, warning that others may not stand up for alleged wrongdoing if they fear punishment.
The former National Security Agency contractor, who in 2013 revealed a trove of classified secrets on the intelligence agency’s surveillance programs, defended his leaks as an act of “public service” while virtually addressing a crowd at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics.
“Martin Luther King brought forth this brand of civil disobedience . . . to create change that could not be ignored,” said Snowden, who appeared on a video screen from Russia, where he is living under temporary asylum. “If all of the weight is borne by a single individual, you can’t build a mass movement because the first one to step forward is put in jail forever.”
Snowden had leaked classified documents to journalists to expose the NSA’s practice of collecting metadata on millions of phone calls in the U.S. He told the group of Chicago students on Thursday that he would return to the U.S. to “face the music” if he would be given a fair trial. Snowden says such a trial would not be allowed under the Espionage Act, which he said does not allow defendants to avoid sanction by proving their actions were made in the public interest.
“If the government was willing to provide a fair trial, I would want to come home and make my case to a jury,” Snowden said. “But if the only tune they are playing is an unfair trial . . . is that really something that we would consider to be in America’s interest?”
Snowden said whistleblowers serve a critical role to the country and some help provide “opportunities to become stronger as a nation.”
“I don’t discount that fact that risks were involved in this,” he said [of his leaks]. “Living in a free society involves risk. That is not a weakness. That is strength.”
