How telling is it that the whole world leaps to hungry attention whenever an outlaw computer geek offers us a tiny glimpse at the truth?
How outrageous is it that we all line up like a bunch of famished orphans from a Charles Dickens novel just to get some small taste of the facts behind what our own government is really doing to us?
How pathetic is it that we all descend upon each leak drop like a flock of starving seagulls on a handful of Doritos, desperate for even one tiny crumb of truth?
I mean, we are supposed to be getting this stuff from the press, after all. We're clear on that, right? That's the whole entire reason freedom of the press enjoys such iron-clad protection within the Constitution's Bill of Rights. You can't have a functional democracy without an informed populace. The whole entire premise is that if people don't understand what's happening, they can't make informed voting decisions.
