Our founding fathers would have cheered them. They would have respected them as heroes.

Chelsea Manning betrayed fellow soldiers, I don't put him in the same class.

The first two exposed abuses. What did Chelsea Manning release that made it safer for normal citizens and abusive tyrants less comfortable? The difference wasn't wasted on Obama who commented her sentence but not for Snowden and Assange.

You put negative connotations to it, I don't see it that way.
And I didn't appear that way to anyone but you it seems. And frankly, they ratted out the people that deserved it. What it does connote is that the people exposed didn't want to be.

Nope. to me the right thing would have been for the IG to use the information they exposed to have criminal prosecution of the government employees that abused their power.

But that still leaves something, why did you attack me for saying they ratted out the government? How do you define ratted out?

I notice he hasn't defined 'ratted out' yet and I don't see that in your answer either.

Do you disagree with how I defined it?

Hiding means their life is over for the duration. A jury would probably see it the way we both see it, they did us a service.

How do you define 'ratting out'?

I define it as exposing things they wanted to keep hidden.
You sure are judgmental without knowing what I mean, I thought the left was supposed to be tolerant, inclusive and sophisticated enough to understand the terms of a discussion.

Not what I was talking about. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/03/massive-dat...

If they want to stand trial for what they did, they would be safe while doing so, and with a jury trial they have a fair chance of explaining their side of why did ratted out our government.

If the workers know they will never, ever be rich, what reason do they have to try harder and to innovate? It's a failure of marxism that the workers stay workers and the rich are still just as rich. But upward mobility is artificially stopped for anyone else.

I knew someone that fled China 10 years ago, and he had an entirely different story to tell. He told of old who starved when they grew too feeble to work. Of people that disappeared if they had original questions.

He escaped to the US and was grateful he could say anything he wanted to say.
