The government is winning the spin war: the more we focus on Snowden, the less we focus on spying. As shown on Twitter.
“People will see in the media all of these disclosures. They’ll know the lengths that the government is going to grant themselves powers unilaterally to create greater control over American society and global society. But they won’t be willing to take the risks necessary to stand up and fight to change things to force their representatives to actually take a stand in their interests.” Edward Snowden, The Guardian.
Turns out you were correct, Mr. Snowden.
