Edward Snowden - Good guy or bad guy?
LolaBelle 33 weeks ago
I wonder what most people think of the guy who leaked NSA surveillance techniques used on the American people. I suspect either way, many more people have started giving their personal privacy significantly more thought. I can see both positions vis a vis Snowden as having some merit: He did reveal what is, to me at least, a level of constant surveillance that is alarming, while at the same time, some legitimate capital B, capital G, Bad Guys now have a clearer idea of what to avoid to prevent detection. So in the end, was what Snowden did a good thing or not?
