We saw video of Edward Snowden earlier on, but now we have Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak chiming in regarding the NSA whistleblower. Wozniak spoke with RT's Oksana Boyko, where he said that he hopes to have the courage to make the same kind of sacrifice for his country if needed.




During an exclusive interview with RT on "Worlds Apart," Wozniak said "I believe he's a hero. I believe he is coming directly from his heart and he feels some goodness, he wants to be truthful to the American people." The Apple co-founder said he doesn't have the same cache of information Snowden does to expose the government's evilness toward its citizens, but said if "there was anything in my life that I could do equivalent to [Snowden's] sacrifice - I would do it."


I think it's great to have someone like Wozniak step forward and call Snowden a hero, and I'm even more impressed that he stated he'd love to do a Snowden equivalent event for his country. Now if we could just get a majority of the government and corporations to actually do this, the world might be a better place.
