Julian Assange and Edward Snowden spilled the beans to substantiate claims that the NSA were spying on us and that subversive elements lay hidden from sight inside the intelligence community!
Many revile them for it and many more applauded their disclosures!
Yet, it would appear that all they really did was to expose mankind's intentions to want to control itself.
We know that now, so what is there left for these people to say?
If it were not the NSA or MI5 intruding on our lives, then who else would it be? Perhaps the Chinese, or the kid hacker next door!
People are essentially going to have to accept that big brother is here and here to stay!
The really big question is... "Will it be a friendly or hostile big brother"?
Either way, Assange and Snowden are effectively irrelevant now that their story is out!
