best outcome
Best Outcome
  • Less conflict
  • NSA changing their policies , while keeping the confidential facts confidential
  • Snowden remaining in the U.S., accepting his punishment if sentenced
  • The best possible outcome did not take place
  • Snowden showed an example of leadership by taking initiative to expose important information to Americans
  • However, he did not portray leadership by fleeing to Russia to avoid punishment
  • Edward thinks he made a right choice for the majority of people
  • However, his confession basically had a huge economical impact on U.S. and damaged the U.S. security system
  • Therefore, having a right to know sometimes causes a huge impact
  • Standing up for the people’s rights doesn’t always lead to positive results
  • Snowden acted in what he believed was the best ethical choice
  • There have been consequences for his actions that he may not have seen coming
