Do you realy believe that if in 20 years from now, if a immoral government comes into power they will be unable to create their own eavesdropping system? Did Himmler say "The previous goverment had no death camps. Thus we can't have any."? If a tyrant comes into power he will misuse whatever is given to him. If some instrument does not exist that he need, he will create it. It have been admitted many times before that intelligence agencies use illegal means to obtain information. What was Snowden expecting to find at his new workplace? I wonder if Snowden is concerned about the possible infringement on civil liberties of the citizens by the intellingence agencies of the countries he tried to flee to. Snowden is a traitor and should be treated as such.
