Nowadays, You Have to Think Like a Hero...
I recently watched "The Russia House", a movie with Sean Connery from the early 90s. His character, Barley Scott Blair, delivered what is now my favorite line from a movie ever: "If there is to be hope, we must all 'betray' our country; we have to save each other, because all victims are equal and none is more equal than others. It is everyone's duty to start the avalanche. Listen, nowadays, you have to think like a hero just to behave like a merely decent human being." I think of my hero Edward Snowden. His actions are heroic but should happen more than it does. It goes to show how many "decent" people actually work for the government. It attracts the lowest form of human life who desire to lord power over their fellow man. God speed, Edward.
