Sadly, some of the worst writing I've ever read. Sadly, it's not just this article. Sadly, the site actually takes itself seriously.

This is where Snowden's naïveté loses me. He actually believes there are academic institutions and public interest organizations working for the common good? They're bought and paid for like everything else. There is no keeping profit lust out.

Anyone who read "The Next 100 Years" by George Friedman — which I refer to as "the future book" — wouldn't be surprised by this.

Extraneous and unnecessary adverbs are rampant here. And when, I wonder, did Allen unofficially buy the jet?
