Edward Snowden by TravisKeaton Edward Snowden by TravisKeaton
I haven't done photorealism in quite awhile, but I couldn't think of a more fitting subject.

The United States of America was founded on a system of checks and balances to prevent oppression and tyranny which has been corrupted by fallible men. Thankfully, in the digital age we have the beacon of unlimited information to shine light into the dark corners of totalitarianism. With this information we can stare back into the mirror and realize that we have driven, through fear, to enable and facilitate the very tyranny this country sought to prevent. We, the United States, have become the "bad guys".

Truth remains treason in the empire of lies, godspeed Edward Snowden for as long as you can outrun the empire.

Извиняюсь что пишу на русском. Жаль парня, прониклась к нему симпатией. Врядли он первый кто так поступил - раскрыл правду, известную лишь по нашим домыслам. Однако он из тех, кто успел донести это миру, если вы понимаете о чемя я... Жаль что моя страна не смогла предоставить ему убежища, надеюсь в Венесуэлле у него все хорошо сложится. Будем ждать хорошего финала этой истории для Эдварда, человека, не побоявшегося сказать правду.

Wow, it's rare to hear someone say that the cause of the current tyranny is pretty much our own darned fault. Yes it's hard to hear, no one likes to hear it, but we have to.

Right, the terrorists don't hate us for our freedom. They hate us because we've been blowing up their villages and installing regimes since the time of the Pahlavis. If you survey the number of armed conflicts in the world and then observe how many the United States has instigated or is involved in, you find we're involved in most of it.
That's why China and Russia mock us and the Middle East hates us.
