Abby Zimet

If you haven't seen it, an extraordinary interview with NSA whistleblower  Edward Snowden on why he chose to reveal "the workings of the machine." Also, Tom Tomorrow on the five stages of living in a surveillance state, why you should care about your privacy, why Snowden is a hero, and why this is the most important leak in American history in the mind of one who should know, Daniel Ellsberg.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
