Glenn Greenwald’s speech on Snowden and Freedom

I’ve never admired a left-wing journalist before, but Glenn Greenwald is a class apart from the bought and paid for, obedient, useful idiots that infest the offices of corporate media.

A damned fine speech from a clear-thinking courageous man worthy of the label “investigative journalist”.  He has decided to discard his fear and do what’s right – like Edward Snowden.

Forget Left and Right – these are divisive labels which hide much of what supporters of each wing has in common: individual liberty is an issue on which the Left and the Right can unite.

If the Left and Right join forces in the wake and on the back of the NSA revelation, the heroic sacrifice of Snowden and the courage of Greenwald and Wikileaks can provide us with an opportunity to tear down the Babylon that has been created over decades by the corporate vampires and warmongers.

If the dark forces can’t divide us, they can’t win.

  1. Brilliant speech, deserves to be listened to, as you say, by a wider audience, regardless of ideology. But the most important part is where he says we must learn to lose the fear, yes it can be difficult to do but do it we must.

    “If the dark forces can’t divide us, they can’t win”. How true.

    • Indeed, David. Fear is debilitating. Quite often we find that the fear of something is worse than the reality of it. And once we break through that barrier at a deep level, courage is the result.

      While there are a few thousand of “them”, there are billions of us. Once we reach a critical mass of fearlessness, the forces of darkness are doomed.
