If you were to compile a list of the most influential individuals of 2013, Edward Snowden would certainly make that list. His actions brought to light a host of concerns about data privacy and the National Security Agency’s surveillance program. But Snowden broke several laws in order to bring that information to the attention of the world, leading many to question his motives.
The question remains, then, should Snowden be treated as a criminal or a whistleblower?
