Snowden leaks, worth dying for: L'Ordre

The Fox-owned Beliefnet website's L'Ordre blog dismisses government concerns of possible public harm or deaths resulting from high-profile breaches of state secrecy by leakers such as the former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

The public good caused by the leaks, L'Ordre argues, is a better cause to die for than any closed-doors activities that the US or British governments might be involved in. Even if the worst fears of lost security caused by Snowden's actions are true, L'Ordre argues, great costs including our very lives would be a price worth paying for transparency and civil liberties. Of all people, rulers who already justify sacrificing the lives of soldiers and civilians for democracy and liberty should understand this argument.

The blog asks a scathing question of US and British political leaders: "Who are you, a bunch of idiots who start pointless wars and lead our soldiers to empty deaths in a desert, to lecture Edward Snowden about the sanctity of life or importance of national security?"

The analysis at the L'Ordre blog uses the analogy of a hornet's nest, only with a little more detail:
Well, even if you grant them their entire argument and conclude that Snowden did cause a lot of damage, there’s another way of looking at it. If you found an idiot with his head embedded in the hornet’s nest of the Middle East, like the NSA and GCHQ have done to themselves, wouldn’t you also feel an urge to kick them up the backside like they deserve?

Also from the blog:
The United States and Britain are apparently governed by charlatans. Their curtain of national security is illegitimate, and must be ripped down at all costs. Even an earthworm would have more discipline to manage our national security in a capable way.
