Edward J. Snowden – HH’s Truth Sayer of 2013.
A man who said Truth, while others did not.
Snowden did not claim to stand for, nor pronounced that he had solutions with, some vaguely noble sounding ideals or philosophies, like Democracy, or Hope.
He just stood up and revealed undeniable facts, secrets that Governments were willing to pay or kill for.
He did not say to the People, You should do this.
He just said to the World, you should KNOW this.
With mere 4 pages, he said what many of us long suspected but either could not say or were afraid to say.
For him, it was 1 simple choice, either say something, or say nothing.
And because he said something, he is the Truth Sayer of 2013. What followed afterwards does not matter and should not matter.
Governments can lock him up, that would not change the Truth of what Snowden revealed.
He may be a hero or a villain, that would not change the Truth of what Snowden revealed.
If it takes a villain to speak the Truth in this World, then we live in a World of Lies.
