Treason?

Fascist-crooksters Dianne Feinstein and John Boehner call Edward Snowdon a “traitor.” But what is treason?

trea·son  /ˈtrēzən/ Noun — The crime of betraying one’s country, esp. by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

Since the American people are sovereign, or so they say, the first part of the definition is irrelevant. So is the word country, since by it the definition (and the regime) mean the government. But can telling those people the truth about what the rulers are doing to them, as they build the total state, be characterized as seeking to overthrow the government? Of course, not. Nor do libertarians, as Mike Rozeff points out, seek to overthrow the government in any case. We’d just get the new boss, same as the old boss. And we eschew violence, which is distilled government. We just want to secede, peacefully, starting as individuals. Here is a Rothbard blueprint. If the parasite collapses without its hosts, well, too bad.
