Ron Paul Interviews Edward Snowden on The Liberty Report

In this wide-ranging exclusive interview, former intelligence analyst turned whistleblower Edward Snowden tells all. What to say to those who argue that they’ve got nothing to hide so nothing to fear from the intrusive ears of the state? Snowden is engagingly philosophical yet frank about his current position and where we are headed as a society. Check out the Freedom of the Press Foundation, where he is Board President:

  1. Anyone else surprised that Edward Snowden buys into the racial paradigm? I see all that crap as obvious division tactics and the current "civil rights" movement having a negative impact on minorities.

  2. Here are a few Lord Acton quotes.

    “Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you superadd the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority.”

    “Despotic power is always accompanied by corruption of morality.”

    “Authority that does not exist for Liberty is not authority but force.”

    “Everybody likes to get as much power as circumstances allow, and nobody will vote for a self-denying ordinance.”

    “Absolute power demoralizes.”
    “Liberty becomes a question of morals more than of politics.”

    “Liberty is the harmony between the will and the law.”

    “Property, not conscience, is the basis of liberty. For the defence of conscience need not arise. Property is always exposed to interference. It is the constant object of policy.”

    “Liberty has not only enemies which it conquers, but perfidious friends, who rob the fruits of its victories: Absolute democracy, socialism.”

    All liberty is conditional, limited and therefore unequal. The state can never do what it likes in its own sphere. It is bound by all kinds of law.”

  3. A fascinating interview, thank you. Alex Jones could learn a lot from Dr Paul's interview style in terms of letting his guests give full and complete expressions of their thoughts in answer to questions.

  4. Outstanding interview of Edward Snowden, by Ron Paul. Well worth 35 minutes of focused attention to watch and listen. Snowden is definitely not a terrorist as our Government would like to make the American people believe, in order to Keep secret the continuing invasion of our privacy, as well as the total disregard of our 4th Amendment Rights. Instead, he is a very thoughtful, well reasoned Patriot for the the American people. Steven Groce, Attorney

  5. So many "governments" are able to spy because they aren't really governments they are arms of an oligarchy posing as politicians/government etc.. who force people to communicate using hardware/software which is designed to prevent the ability to communicate in privacy. You cannot solve this issue which prevents freedom of any kind without both removing the corrupted governments/politicians forcing this on people as well as changing the architecture itself which is built for the purpose of not allowing people to have real control of electronics. They may think that they do but from what I know they don't just the illusion of such.

  6. "Saying that you don't care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about freedom of speech because you have nothing to say". Wow.

  7. I would glean from Edward's comments about the PSP program under Bush, that the Presidential Surveillance Program is still in place and no doubt enhanced and used by Obama. Edward referred to it as a program for "wire tapping" all Americans. Perhaps Trump knew what he was talking about when he stated that Trump Tower was "wire tapped". Always insightful to listen to Edward. The interview was especially good at the 30:00 marker towards the end. Thank You!

  8. It's amazing how a country like America, which would have thousands of capable, decent, honest and patriotic men and women, could find itself in such a state of infiltration and subversion from within. Unbelievable really and very sad

  9. Dr. Paul you're a great interviewer and still sharp as a tack. Great questions and answers, knowing full well time is limited and you can't go TOO deep. You too Daniel (i think it is!), always a great compliment to Dr. Paul. May God bless you both to continue in your setting the standard for "alternate media". Great job guys.
