Let me ask you, couch-potato man, how many more Edward Snowdens will throw away their careers, their life savings, and flee for the rest of their lives in order to save your sorry freedom that you don't even value yourself? Why should they? Are you worth it? Are you even on the right side of history? Ignorance, in the hyper-information age, is rather pathetic, don't you think?
