Well, the Edward Snowden saga continues. He’s the man who became a whistle-blower and told the world what the National Security Agency is doing to Americans.
He’s no longer in Hong Kong. Hong Kong would not arrest him because the Justice Department didn’t sent it the required information . He’s now in Russia and will head to Cuba. From Cuba, he’s going to Ecuador. All these countries don’t seem to have extradition policies with the U.S. Edward Snowden asked Ecuador for asylum and Ecuador approved it.
And he also got some help from Julian Assange. Julian Assange is the Wikipedia owner who’s in hiding from the British government. He’s taken refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy. If he steps out of the Ecuadorian Embassy, he’s subject to arrest by the British government. And once the British government gets its hands on him it will deport him to the U.S., where he will probably be put on trial and end up in jail.
Now Edward Snowden is a target like many of us, except he did something, we didn’t do anything. Not a G-d damn thing. Now that makes three people who will be going on trial, or are already on trial. There’s Bradley Manning, Julian Assange and now Edward Snowden. All people who felt the U.S. was committing crimes against other countries or on their own citizens and let the world know.
Things in the U.S. have certainly changed. Who would have thought that, like other countries, the U.S. would try to control citizens and mold them into zombies?
It used to be people were anxious to get into the U.S. and were hungary enough to do anything to leave their country to gain freedom. Now, people are leaving the U.S. to get away from a corrupt government who spies on its citizens.
Pretty soon, people will be going to other countries to get away from invasion of privacy by the U.S. government. They will be seeking asylum in countries like Ecuador, Venezuela, Russia, even China, etc.
Finally, “1984” has come to the U.S. It’s been happening for a while, but no one’s paid attention. Americans still believe all the lies the U.S. government has been telling them. It took the courage of Edward Snowden to get some Americans to wake up. A lot of Americans still feel that the spying going on by America is perfectly all right. It just tells me that these people don’t understand what freedom means. It does not mean that your country spies on you, even if it’s only keeping track of phone calls. From hacking their phones calls, it will lead to other spying. Spying into their homes, workplace, while walking around, etc. This is what a little spying eventually leads to.
And I know what it’s like to be spied on. They’ve spied on me for four years. They spy on me at home, outside, store, doctor’s office, library, walking, etc. There’s nowhere I can go that I’m not followed. This is what life will be like for all those people who think a little spying is “no problem.”
So, if this is what the American people want to accept, there’s really nothing I can do about it. I’ve tried warning Americans since 2010 on what’s occurring in the U.S., but I’ve gotten nowhere. It’s lead to my life becoming a living hell. And to have Edward Snowden back me up on what’s been happening in the U.S. is the best news ever! He’s definitely a hero. I hope he gets to Ecuador safely and leads a good life. And I hope he continues to speak out on what’s really happening to American citizens.
I wish him a safe journey and keeping my fingers crossed until I know he’s safe. Good luck, Edward Snowden!
