A bust sculpture of Edward Snowden was thoughtfully placed in Brooklyn just before dawn on Monday. It survived only a few hours in Fort Greene Park amongst monuments of Revolutionary War and Prison Ship Martyrs Movement associates.
There were three artists involved in the creation of this monument to Edward Snowden who wanted to make a statement to the modern day martyrs who fight back against the violation of our amendment rights.
Edward Snowden put his safety at risk to expose these constitutional violations to the public. He is now living in Russia.
It’s about time the people assemble to create what is important to us. It’s nice that we have memorials for veterans/POW’s or even 9/11 victims, but they seem to be more of a reminder that in the face of agendas, our lives are expendable. It’s nice to see that someone who is now charged with two counts of violating the Espionage Act and government theft, merely for letting the public in on what goes on behind our backs is now being publicly applauded.
Though, the statue was removed by the afternoon. A NYC parks spokeswoman defends the removal by indicating it’s erection without approval is illegal.
The link shows a short video on it’s removal. It would be great if more of these popped up across the nation. It’s a peaceful message that shows the government that we are all done with the secrets and exploitation. It’s time to give that up and be transparent to those you claim to lead.
It’s definitely not an If but when…
NASA chief scientist have predicted that it’s only a matter of time now when alien life will be discovered. We are already finding all the life sustaining elements needed to support life so why wouldn’t life be found?
The predictions are specifically noting that this 10 year discovery will likely be microbials rather than extraterrestrials, but they are feeling that that will be discovered in 20-30 years.
Of course, we are looking at this as Earth being Universe-Centric and that we are the ones who will discover these life forms elsewhere. I’m sure the time frame will be much different if it’s not US finding THEM, but them finding us. Some believe they already have and have been here for eons.
Is this another subtlety of disclosure? If we say this now, and it happens at least we’ve vaguely said it so we can take credit for disclosure later? These questions should be pondered. If I was a NASA scientist and I KNEW life was out there, I’d want to make sure I “predicted” some sort of discovery before it happened…or was formally disclosed.
I don’t see how 10 years could go by with us merely discovering microbial life forms. There will only be more exposure, with people like Edward Snowden who are brave enough to put it out there…which has happened in limited capacity.
It’s been said that the statement, “There is no intelligent life in space” will be our generations, “The world is flat”.
We are far greater beings than we have been told, far greater beings than most of us realize.
In Light and Love,
