Response to Recursion (Reply #42)

49. I seriously doubt you know any humanistic democratic progressives

 

who work for the CIA or the NSA. Since the work both agencies do is always right-wing, progressives or people with a conscience would hardly even be considered for the jobs. You can't BE a spy.

It's simply not possible to be involved in surveillance and spying and infiltration and still retain any degree of genuine humanity. The training regimen in all spying agencies is about teaching people to hate and fear the world and to see anyone who is in any way different from our leaders as "the enemy".

Why would you even bother defending the national security state? It doesn't defend you if you're not a right-wing extremist. It doesn't defend people who work for peace...or people who organize unions...or women, POC or LGBTQ people...or green values.
When has the CIA or the NSA or the FBI ever been on OUR side?
