The Patriot Act was without one of the most unpatriotic and unconstitutional laws in American history. The Bill of Rights, especially the the First and Fourth Amendments do not allow the insane and worldwide surveillance society we have that looks at 1,200,000 people at any time. That’s staggering. “Citzenfour” is an incredibly important and brave documentary, by the patriot who believes in the Constitution, liberty and privacy Edward Snowden. He’s just a soft spoken tech geek that thought things went too far and he had to expose some of it. The sad thing is all of the surveillance society keeps getting bigger and costs billions. At this point the American government is the biggest terrorist state in the world. Monitoring communications around the world with only a puppet court looking on, a Congress who is afraid to act, and an incredibly disappointing President on National security issues, Barack Obama. Mr. Obama promised that he would bring accountability to the security state. It hasn’t happened, it’s only getting bigger. And we have an insanely large military with bases around the world.
We need sanity. Instead of trying to be the only superpower and the “world’s policeman,” lets help those who have had life struggles get back on their feet.
It’s a must see documentary if you care about democracy, freedom, investigative journalism and liberty.
I feel like I have a lot more to say about this topic, and I think I will be adding to this post.
