Your local neighborhood peeping Tom.Submitted by The_Gunslinger on Mon, 08/04/2014 - 15:56
Imagine that one day, a man appears on your doorstep. He introduces himself, and tells you that he is ashamed to say that he and another man have been spying into the neighborhoods windows at night. Viewing everything from family diners to explicit acts in peoples homes.
He tells you that he was initiated into peeping with this other guy who really got off on that type of thing, and was way into it. However, he quickly realized that this was wrong, and has since stopped the practice. He was hesitant to alert the community because he had sworn an oath of silence to the Peeping mentor.
He tells you that despite his oath, he feels it is his obligation to inform all the members of the neighborhood, that their private lives are not so private as long as the seasoned peeper is out there.
Now here is the question. Do you hate the guy for what he has done? Do you hate him for breaking his promise to the peeper? Do you hate him for informing you about the invasion of your privacy? Or do you thank him for being honest and bringing the subject to light?
This is the situation to consider when thinking about Edward Snowden.
