Edward Snowden Says He Would ‘Absolutely’ Do It Again

Edward Snowden addresses South by Southwest.

The NSA whistle-blower told an audience at the SXSW festival/conference via video chat, “Would I do it again? Absolutely yes.” He added: “I took an oath to defend the Constitution, and I felt the Constitution was being violated on a massive scale.”

Snowden lobbied his tech industry audience to embrace strong encryption, with the metaphor that the government has set fire to the Internet and technologists are the firefighters.

The video below is not that easy to watch, in part because Snowden passed his conversation through a claimed seven proxies between Russia and the United States.
