The Young in a War of Conscience, Edward Snowden Against the Godless Soulless Personhood of the Corporate / Political State?

First Bradley Manning. 

Now Edward Snowden. 

The young are throwing the word “conscience” around like they know what it means and the price they must pay to have the courage to use it.
“I’m willing to sacrifice all of that because I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, Internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.” ~~ Edward Snowden
The world belongs to the young, their conscience at least, even if they do not own shares in the companies that build drones for profit, guns for profit, spy software used all over this planet.

The best some whistleblower can do is open the secret book for others to see and read.
Leaker of NSA program: 
‘I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy’...


Implosion - Building 877 Governor’s Island, New York Harbor

Governor’s Island, where the Dutch originally set foot in New Amsterdam (present New York City) but did not settle it because it was too small for both people and the grazing of cows too etc., has been going through changes in the past decade or two since its close as a Coast Guard Facility in the nineties.

Lots of plans for park land and possible college facilities.

The tallest of the buildings used for military personnel housing got imploded today. The first building allowed to be imploded in NYC since before 9-11-2001 BTW. It used to be, before today, a standard landmark for the passing Staten Island Ferry.
