I should have worded it differently. I don't agree that it's nothing new.
Proof of a massive surveillance state that treats every individual as a potential terrorist, violating all forms of privacy, and archives all phone,
text, email, voice and video communications,with rubber-stamped approval, forcing companies to silently comply..... That's news. It's horrifying. A
potentially irreversible descent into the Orwellian society we have been warned about for decades. And we've only gotten 1% so far of the whole
picture. Everything we know as of right now is like the teaser for something much much worse.
But I can see the way to deal with a huge leak of truth is to attack the messenger, muddy the conversations, question who he is, why did he do this...
As if conscience alone isn't enough. Which would be fine if we didn't have all this hard-proof evidence of a massive surveillance state that acts
above the law and treats everyone as a potential terrorist.
Regarding the OPs question, is he for real... I would say all signs point to yes, because what government would want to create an inspiring character
of such moral fortitude, that he sacrifices his own safety and security, to listen to his conscience and release highly sensitive info just because he
believes that "We the People" have a right to know we're being spied on.
