Since I'm a regular on Al-Jazeera, I was just watching the documentary about whistleblowers. I mean everybody knows Ed Snowden or Julian Assange by now. Some say these two are traitors, some say they are heroes. I think they are none of the two - simply very courageous people who have a sense for injustice and crime.
Now you might say, hey, crime ? Yes, crime. but it's not THEM who have committed the crimes, but the ones who wilfully and on purpose lie to their own people. The traitors are the ones who accuse them being traitors.
The traitors are the ones who try to set up a worldwide system of digital surveillance and total control in order to feed their delusional dreams of world government - world enslavement, after all. The media is already in their hands, the Internet and - despite some darknetters around (but......ARE they really in the "dark" or is that "darknet" also a setup to easier control those groups ?), or some social groups or sites which are not censored yet, there is not much possibility for the regular Joe to get REAL news and stories.
The last and newest step are dumbphones. Yes, I call them as such, because people who use them TODAY are dumb, careless or live by the illusion of "I don't do anything wrong, so they can control me". Well, they don't only control you and your movements, but also what you SAY. Freedom of speech (or write) until you get the cops in your house because you don't seem politically correct ?
Your life is managed not by you, realize that. Not even what you THINK might be what YOU think, deep down. You're being led to where you are, and soon you will say what they tell you to - because you don't have the choice to find another source of which you can escape that newthink or newspeak.
Whistleblowers are not traitors. They are the last ones who fight for our freedom, and when you deny that, you're already been taken in by THEM - by the enemies of freedom and free opinion.
