This Friday, 16 September, the movie Snowden will release in theaters across the world. I won’t be seeing this movie. Whether or not you think Edward Snowden is a hero or a villain please realize that he still did something wrong. If his intentions were as pure as he claims, he still went grossly the wrong way about it. To add to that, he did in fact endanger men and women across the globe by handing information over to countries that are adversarial in nature to the United States.

The United States Intelligence organizations have many technological abilities to use against our adversaries. These are used to protect our nation from many threats. More threats than just terrorism. More threats industrial espionage. More threats than you likely imagine. For good or ill he has weakened the defense of our home.

What the United States Intelligence organizations lacks however is both the Man Power or the Desire to screen United States citizens as arbitrarily as Mr. Snowden claimed. They also lack the right to monitor U.S. citizens. Much like obtaining a court order to wiretap a phone for a police investigation, any Intelligence Agency that wants to monitor a citizen has to get specific legal permission to do so.

There are those who abuse these technologies. It’s sadly true and very unfortunate. But those scares few who do, do not make up the majority of men and women whose job it is to defend this country by way of National Intelligence. One of which Snowden is not.

If you decide to see this movie, please realize you are viewing a dramatization of events condensed and summarize to fit in to a two-hour time span. You will not see the entire story. You will not see the complete truth. You will see what director Oliver Stone and screenwriter Kieran Fitzgerald want you to see. That does not make this movie unbiased. Far from it in fact.

Many of you who think that the U.S. Government is trampling on your civil liberties with the evil information machine are mistaken. You are not mistaken of the ability to do it, just the intent. Many of you think that Snowden released this information for your benefit… I disagree.

I won’t tell you not to see the movie. I would ask that if you are truly interested then do your own research. Edward Snowden is no hero, and doesn’t deserve the praise he has received. I don’t believe the movie deserves your $14 or the attention it’s getting either, but that’s just me.

How sweet of you to say! :hug: I have been painting digitally for about seven years now and looking back on my old work I see how far I've come, how much my style has changed. I think your art is great already and who knows where you'll be in seven years time? Keep drawing! :heart:

I wish. I'm a writer not an artist. All the artwork you see on my page is either fanart based on my writing or commissioned work.
