Wolf892: People biatch about how no one does enough to fight back when the US takes away their rights, that government agencies can set up things like the TSA to sexually assault our grandmothers and frighten our children, that the gitmo prison remains open, and that the government puts the interests of corporations and big business ahead of their own citizens... But when people like Snowden, and Dorner get sick and tired of the corruption and the lies being fed to us actually try to do something to make a change, we the people seem to turn on them like snarling animals.
I don't get it... Why aren't more US citizens supporting Snowden? He brought to attention a vast conspiracy against the US population and the world by showing how the US spies on it's own citizens and its allies. Dorner got tired of the rampant corruption that plagues the police system and through action tried to affect change.
How do people think change happens? By peaceful protests like Occupy Wall Street that left the 1% laughing at the ineffectual and impotent rage that we feel, or by the people getting angry and using violent revolution to remind the government that they should fear us, and not the other way around.


This is Fark.  The people here *are* snarling animals, regardless of who or what is at issue.

If person X leaks secrets, he's breaking the law and therefore in the wrong.

If X keeps his mouth shut and keeps the secrets, then he's complicit in the invasion of our privacy and also in the wrong.

Regardless -- whatever happens, whoever is involved -- they are certainly doing it wrong.
