MLK never revealed state crimes so your analogy is that of a sleeping brain. Daniel Ellsberg would have been a better comparison. I'd go into it with you but clearly you need more sleep.

No, I'm perfectly woken up. If he was engaged in true civil disobedience - like Martin Luther King or anyone else - he would`ve at least stayed in the free world and faced the music. I guarantee he`d be released before long and his point made. A country, transformed.
Now, he`s just cowering in dictatorships. It mutes everything he`s trying to say. I agree with his message, but I have no sympathy for him. Why? Because I wrote a fairly intensive 50 page research paper during my MA program at Columbia University about a subject similar to this. There is no way that he isn`t being handled by the FSB.

Andrew, use your brain. He couldn't "flee" to an allied country. He had to flee to somewhere we have no extradition treaties with. You speak like you`re a part of some ultimate righteous country that respects individual rights when Snowden`s revelations and US Government actions prove that to be a lie. Wake up.
