Edward Snowden - Man of Steel
Plastic Jesus hits the streets with a new Superman themed piece based on Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor who leaked the fact that the NSA is recording every single thing put online, every single phone call, and text.
The information that Snowden revealed will lead to arguably the largest privacy fight of the digital generation. However, instead of talking about the issues that Snowden raised, the mass media seems more focused on what his girlfriend looks like, and smearing his character. Snowden has taken it all in stride, and said that getting called a traitor by Dick Cheney is a back handed compliment. Indeed, it is.
Even if the mass media and the government itself gets upset when a citizen shows that what the government is doing is wrong, it takes a true man of steel to speak truth to power. Dig that Plastic Jesus gives Snowden this Superman treatment.
Big ups to Snowden for daring to risk his own safety to help all of America. Stay up!~
