i mean, i dont think he calls himself a genius. and he basically admits hes not a coder, more of a sysadmin. it was never him that paraded himself around like a genius.
all he wanted to do was to let everyone know the government was spying on everyone

I mean he's already resigned to the fact that he probably isn't ever going coming back to USA. He's already made too many enemies there. It's a shame but pardoning Snowden would be conciliatory at best and makes no sense politically

Where did he say this and did he mean he isn't probably coming back because
1. He actually doesn't WANT to come back or 2. Because he believes he will never be able to come back

>It's a shame but pardoning Snowden would be conciliatory at best and makes no sense politically
>if hes pardoned, smart move would be not to come back.
How would these make sense, when the US goverment wants people to think like
And believe that he actually is an US enemy and working for Russia? It would be in my opinion a dumb fuck move to not return if he wants to keep atleast some credibility. Also, if US really thinks there'd be a chance he wouldn't come back, they should pardon him and push the ideology I just presented.

>no reason
It's about principle for me. I encrypt all my emails and shit and all I do via email is discuss BBQ stuff. I have nothing to hide from the government, but I still hide it because I feel cheated by the fact that I don't have a choice. The government being able to read the essay I sent to my bunny via IRC about why Sweet Baby Ray's is better than Tony Roma should not be the default state. There is a reason I sent it to my friend, not the government. Because I only want my friend to read it. It's about principle. The lack of privacy is ridiculous and even though I don't do anything bad, I still hide most of what I do from them, because I'm not comfortable with someone watching me like that otherwise. You wouldn't leave the front door to your house wide open while you're having sex with your wife, would you? So how is this any different? If you've got nothing illegal to hide, just let the government watch you fuck your wife, right?

OP is dump for posting this. Snowden is just a celeb at this point.

I honestly agree with you.... but fuck that.

It's a double edged sword. On one hand, encryption protects those that wish to speak without prosecution. E2E offers true privacy withing two people.
On the other, bad guys use it for drug trafficking, human trafficking, or any other bad guy stuff.

**This next bit a very ROUGH analogy. Close your ears if you're easily cringed*

Encryption is like freedom of speech. You have the good guys who use it to help others and you have bad guys who use it to hurt others.
There will always be bad guys where you have freedom. It's how the world turns. Taking away the freedom is *A* solution, but as history has shown, then less freedom you give your people, the more stressed and angrier they become.

You take away a freedom they value, and the good guys begin to question their governments legitimacy.
From there comes militia, then conflict.

Though I think they're communist black supremacists, BLM is an example of what happens when you let a group of people get angry. Hong Kong protest another.

>> No.77738229

glow rogan shills whatever current narrative the CIA wants disseminated to the masses of midwits that watch his show.

Snowden is a limited hangout agent who does things like reinforce the official 9/11 narrative in between reminding everyone about the "shocking" revelations he released years ago that showed that US intelligence agencies spy on us using the Internet.

His leaks really provided no information that people did not already assume was the case, or that harmed the US government in any way. If anything the leaks served to make the US government seem more powerful than it actually is in order to stoke fear among American citizens and America's geopolitical enemies.

Snowden's only real advice for dealing with the surveillance revelations is to take the mic out of your cellphone and use some autistic software, which is obviously not a long-term solution to the actual problem.

Note too that Snowden is shilled non-stop by the establishment media apparatus as well as controlled nu-media outlets such as Rogan's podcast here. If he were truly a threat to the system he would be unpersoned and completely ignored by the media. Instead he's propped up as a brave underdog hero who we should all listen to for advice on how to implement some placebos to mitigate our anxiety about being surveilled by a government that hates us and wants us dead.
