'It'll be turnkey tyranny.'
Edward Snowden, the 29 year old consultant who blew the whistle on the NSA PRISM surveillance system, talks with Glenn Greewald and walks the audience through exactly what's at stake.
Snowden makes it perfectly clear that he's sitting on a lot more data than he's released, and if pressured or threatened, he might release that additional data anyway - including rosters of all staff at the NSA, undercover agents, and so forth.
Snowden is an extraordinarily thoughtful and eloquent individual who seems to have his act together. He's also a hero.
