Robert Shetterly has issued another in a long list of portraits of Americans Who Tell The Truth. This one is of whistleblower Edward Snowden.
|"The public needs to know the kinds of things a government does in its name, or the "consent of the governed" is meaningless... The consent of the governed is not consent if it is not informed. "|
George Orwell once said, "In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act." At no time in history has truth telling been such a necessity.
The world is in desperate need of nonviolent revolutionaries. Let us hope that Snowden's courage will be contagious, spreading like a wildfire and encouraging others to find the courage to speak truth to power.
