    DeRay on Crooked Media did an interview with Snowden a couple weeks ago. It was really interesting. My feelings on him are very complicated. Like it was not ok what they were doing and he seemed to take a lot of care to not unmask any person. His background isn't a radical person with an agenda, just a normal person who felt he had to speak out on something wrong. He seems to want to help people protect their privacy now. But... I don't agree with all that he does or says. I can't think of him as a hero, but I can't think of him as a traitor. Assange is a piece of shit.

    *edit* Regina, I agree 100%.

    I still have faith in the rule of law, I just think it's going to take longer to unfold than we'll be happy with. Social media will be a nightmare all the way through.
