minute ~32 - ~33 - ~34 :: declaring something national secret / classified, that is no harm to citizens of the country if it were public ... is anti-democratic. It is Dictatorship/Elite/Establishment-like behaviour. It is the short cut Career Politicians take for their own gain. /// +++ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Eyes "Despite the impact of Snowden's disclosures, the general consensus among experts in the intelligence community holds that no amount of global outrage will affect the Five Eyes relationship, which, to this day, remains the most powerful espionage alliance in world history." +++ http://pando.com/2014/09/15/greenwald-in-new-zealand-grandstanding-doesnt-get-more-condescending-or-counter-productive/ Sure, to use the release of the information (against Key & Government) as a grand stand may be opportunistic, but to swipe the evidence away because of it is unacceptable. It is still a Political Campaign, a Party running for election, like any other party ... would do so.

eBay Shrugged: Pierre Omidyar believes there should be no philanthropy without profit | PandoDaily
Pierre Omidyar. The role of Omidyar Network in so many major events of the past week — helping elect India’s ultranationalist leader Narendra Modi; co-funding Ukraine regime-change NGOs with USAID, resulting in a deadly civil war and Monday’s election of Ukrainian billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko; and now, this week’s first-ever sit-down TV interview with Edward Snowden, through an arrangement between NBC News and Pierre Omidyar’s First Look Media — shows how these contradictions are coming to the fore, and shaping our world. [...] Muhammad Yunus failed to dissuade Omidyar: "Let them make money—but why do you want to make money off the poor people?” [...] “Omidyar views the fund as a way of testing his theories about commercializing the sector. ‘It’s really the demonstration impact I’m looking for, primarily,’ he said.” << Billionaires Playground. Rarefied People.
