Part Three

In the three-part charges by the government against Edward Snowden, who spilled the beans on government activities including spying on American citizens, one charge is espionage.

To understand the meaning of espionage, I quote the legal definition: “Espionage, or spying, has reference to the crime of gathering, transmitting, or losing information respecting the national defense with intent or reason to believe that the information is to be used to the injury of the United States.”

According to all the news reports I hear and read, his was not any intention of harming the United States, but rather, according to what he says, to inform the American people of the wrong-doing of political government activities, violating privacy rights by spying on phone conversations and breaking into emails. As I see it, he has risked his life for this country by presenting information to the American people which he was privy to, in the job he held, by informing the people of the activities of government invading one’s privacy.

Almost hourly there’s some news report on the Snowden case, and I have heard nothing to suggest he had any intention or reason to act in any manner that describes espionage. Is this just government fabrication?

Political government is a con game, i.e., keep your eye on one ball while they have others juggling in the air. And it appears from all indications, our current system of government has a priority of protecting its power, number one, and expanding it, number two.

Secondly, it’s elementary in a socialist system, to make full use of propaganda in any situation that arises. Currently there are so many scandals circling around the current regime of those in power from the top down. The news story about Snowden is a very convenient event to use, enlarge upon, and propagandize, which dilutes national attention away from all the scandals on the horizon and circling the White House.

I personally have a lot of empathy for Snowden. From what he says he did not decide to choose the route he took expecting it to be a bed of roses. Quite the contrary, from all I’ve heard him say, he expected the treatment he’s getting, and even talks about the very real possibility of being killed.

In my opinion, Snowden handed the American people a ticket of factual information, powerful enough to turn this country around and back on the road to the Principles upon which it was founded. Instead, it appears the majority have turned their anger and resentment on the messenger and avoiding meaningful actions against the perpetrators of the unlawful actions as reported in the news.

Even those in the news media and politicians who express some degree of appreciation for the knowledge dumped in their lap, seem to always add a “but” to the talking points, which end with an unfavorable slant towards Snowden. An indication of support for the government to go after him, with the charges outlined. This is not a movie we are watching, but reality of the deteriorated conditions in this country, and a peephole into the future for things to expect. Not a favorable outlook.

As for myself, I flat report, my stance is a belief he’s a hero.
