      I used to get paid to watch these things. I don’t any more.  So… I’m going to go read a nice novel in a coffee shop.  Please feel free to talk about the debate in comments.  I will, actually, be curious to hear what people have to say, just not willing to sit thru so […]

Who or what is Snowden?

The leaker identifies himself.  Or does he?

Maybe he’s a metaphor for virtue or humanity made mortal by conscienceless militaristic flak and ultimately destroyed by Milo Minderbinder’s greedy capitalism.

Then again, his hideout scenario sounds eerily familiar.  It sounds like what the protagonist did in Ready Player One.

The authors say he showed them his SSN and other identification.  Hmmm, did he start off life as Snowden before he was at the CIA or did he merely adopt that persona for security clearance, because that would be bloody clever.  Betcha he’s not in Hong Kong or Iceland.

Whoever or whatever Snowden is, stay safe.

  1. First. Wow. This is all new to me.

    Including Ready Player One. I’ll read that!

    • Good book. It’s all about the Internet and an evil corporate group that is trying to take it over. Simple plot is that it’s a sort of cyberspace scavenger hunt, deeper plot is a frightening dystopian novel.

      • Sounds like the perfect summer reading!

        Astonishing…. They’ve got the ebook at my library. They NEVER have stuff I’ve searched for. So. Checked out already!!🙂

  2. I wouldn’t be surprised if Snowden is keeping a few secrets up his sleeve–the kind of secrets the Chinese military would want. 😮

    That would give him a bargaining chip to use if it looked like the US govt. was close to prying him out of Hong Kong. He could swap the secrets for asylum in China itself, as China is one of the few countries which can tell Uncle Sam to go hump a cactus and get away with it. 😈
