I have posted so much crap on this journal, that anyone who bothers to read it from day one forward will become absolutely convinced that I lost my mind some time ago.
My mood swings, my comedy, my rhetoric, hell even my links, all have painted me in a rather ecclectic light, as far as I am concerned, and I have repeatedly been told that my journals are, for the most part, interesting to read by several of you. While I appreciate the sentiment, I have, of late, begun to feel that I have abused this platform to say something profound, and I have not as yet, really said it. Not to my own satisfaction, at any rate.
That being said, I stumbled onto something earlier that has turned my head upside down. Below is a link to what I am referring to, an article written by an actually well-regarded journalist, covering Edward Snowden. This journalist is known for having done the nearly identical thing Snowden did back in his era of prominence, but on a much smaller scale than Snowden.
My opinion about Edward Snowden, what he did, and why he may have done it, are in the record of my piles of shit journal posts. If you care enough about my opinion, and I assume you don't you already know. However my opinion of this man is not what this is about.
This is, quite simply, the most thought-out, well researched, informative, and interesting article I have read in my entire life.
I urge you, dear readers, friends, and others who lurk, to read this, and think about it. It might seriously change your life, and the lives of all you love and wish to protect....www.wired.com/2014/08/edward-s…
