The Snowden saga heralds a radical shift in capitalism - FT.com: " . . . . the National Security Agency contractor turned whistleblower has revealed too many uncomfortable truths about how today’s world works. Technical infrastructure and geopolitical power; rampant consumerism and ubiquitous surveillance; the lofty rhetoric of “internet freedom” and the sober reality of the ever-increasing internet control – all these are interconnected in ways most of us would rather not acknowledge or think about. Instead, we have focused on just one element in this long chain – state spying – but have mostly ignored all others. . . ."
Prediction: Edward Snowden will never be prosecuted in the United States, but will live out his life as a free global citizen.
