Oliver Stone: Our Country Was Born In Rebellion Against The Tyranny Of Unchecked Power
The madness gets more unbelievable every single day. You talk about f*cked up. This is right out of some dystopian thought crimes horror story. Insider threat? There is no insider threat other than that of political parties and politicians, the military industrial complex and corporations who have committed high crimes and misdemeanors against the sovereign people of this nation. Snowden? Manning? Kiriakou? Ludicrous. There must be a provable willful intent to aid an enemy or mens rea to be prosecuted under an act of espionage. There is no way this is provable in any of these cases. Prosecuting them under the guise of espionage is an act of state terrorism and lawlessness. It is the coercive bullying by employing all of the force of the state in an effort to defeat discovery, transparency, accountability and true justice.
The endless asinine behavior of the aristocracy in Britain and France at the time of the Age of Enlightenment (the French and American Revolutions) don’t have anything over the ignorant arrogance and tyranny of modern-day politicians.
