UPDATED: Should Greenwald Just Stop?Submitted by gsneil on Fri, 07/12/2013 - 09:11
The ongoing disclosures of how the NSA and “partner” companies have been betraying the privacy of the American people are interesting, for sure. But it seems to me, that adding a lot of detail which does not appear to be creating any additional units of resolve on the part of those who could do anything to actually do something, is just so much embarrassment of riches.
The most important disclosure (the scope and constitutional violation) being out there already, what point is there for Greenwald to continue the revelations? For the draw value?
Has the window for change already closed b/c Americans have not by now demonstrated mass outrage and demanded that heads roll? My own sense is, yes. The fuckers are getting away with it, all the while directing the dumbed down public to the Snowden puppet show.
Someone, please tell us. What’s the point of Greenwald continuing to publish more? Is there something coming that would actually be more compelling than what’s already known (and ignored)?
UPDATE: For the many who are missing the main point, please research the "primacy principle" of making an impression. The FIRST STIMULUS is the one that makes the biggest impression. If the initial reporting about this issue did not get action, what hope for the consequent efforts, which are less impressive? We know that our so-called representatives have not done a damn thing, other than call Snowden a traitor.
