There was a time–decades ago–when the United States were considered the freest soil on earth.

Now the international community increasingly recognizes that the U.S. government is among the world’s most totalitarian states–especially with regard to the U.S. government’s vast surveillance and takeover of cyberspace, cell, and internet technology.

This past week, the European Union voted (by an unfortunately close vote) to grant whistleblower Edward Snowden asylum status anywhere in Europe.

The EU considers Snowden’s alleged whistleblowing acts as humanitarian activities. See here.

Many U.S. government officials want Snowden tried, imprisoned or executed for treason or “espionage” for exposing the government’s unconstitutional surveillance of its citizens.
