Myths and heros

Then, on a website named “Wikileaks” we learnt that this surveillance is not only in USA but everywhere in the world. Indeed, the website revealed that 160 companies in 20 deferents countries are developing completely illegal softwares. For me, this revelation makes us some heroes because they show us the truth about the government.

Finally, we don’t say that but after there actions, the whistleblowers for example Snowden has to left the country. For some people, they think that he left to give intel to the USA’s enemies, informations about army’s strategies for example. For me, that has been some years that Snowden left and USA didn’t know any particularly attack so I think he only tries to be not caught by the US government.  

To conclude, I think that we can qualify whistleblowers as felons or felons because for some people, what they do was heroic but for someone else, no. Another, they are not recognized by any government and did these revelations really change something?
