I really appreciate both how Kerry Cassidy tussles with the conundrum of Snowden (especially taking into account Jon Rappoport’s posts on the subject), as well how she exits the whirlwind feeling much like I do — that his idealism might have set him up to be duped. But then she imagines the whistleblowing hum that’s blowin’ in the wind springing into a full-throated roar. YES.

“But what if? What if they are really truly whistleblowers… and there’s not one but two? And then three… and then four… What if?
Because in my view, this is the most frightening scenario of all to countries and those in charge of these organizations that believe themselves to be omniponent. The idea that one man or woman could bring down the whole house of cards, in one brief instant, by an act of valor… and capture the imagination of the world… This must be the one thing they can’t bear to think about and yet must think about all the time. And then the idea that becoming a WHISTLEBLOWER might catch on, like some new disease in the zeitgist of the public… That being a WHISTLEBLOWER might become “cool”… a fad worth following… Well by God, they could take down a system, perhaps even an entire new world order… that is, should such a ‘great notion’ catch on.
