Glenn Greenwald Killed the Internet

Category Cartoons

You know the Internet is in trouble when people start taking plane flights to deliver messages.  After Glenn Greenwald's partner was detained for nine hours and stripped of all his computer gear, it's clearly time to look at new ways of communicating.
Since it's come out that NSA programs target, um, everyone, I thought we should take a look at alternatives to the Internet and modern forms of communication.  If Glenn Greenwald asked his partner, David Miranda, to deliver documents and messages by plane and still got snooped, what's left?  Not to get too conspiratorial, but if they're monitoring our phone calls, watching all Internet communication and nabbing people on plane flights, seems like a good time to get off the grid if you want privacy.
 
Everything keeps coming up spying and secrets.  Since I started working on this cartoon a couple of days ago, even more spying overreach has hit the news and Bradley Manning was given the longest sentence ever for leaking.  Email, share, Facebook and comment on this cartoon, if you dare!

    Dear Mr. Fiore,
    Were I Glenn Greenwald's mother, I'd truly upset with you be. As it is, you have a nice comforting voice, I'll bet you wear a nice suit and tie as well.
    Now about Privacy, I was a private once...in the army...That's not what you meant? Did you mean privvy(like the WC)?...I didn't think so...Anyway fortunately for me, my life is sooooo boring who would want to watch it anyway?
    Silllily yours,
    charles rule
