I think what Edward Snowden did was brave. The government does keep much information under surveillance. However, I do feel that the government’s goal is to try and protect the people, thus why they keep things hidden. But I also feel that the information being leaked isn’t good because the government needs to know certain things that happen over the internet or phone because of harmful things that could be happening to the public. This information should be kept in private if it is to protect the people. I do believe that the legal actions being taken for Edward Snowden though are too extreme.
