Snowden

Where business interests and State interests conflict there is internal ruling class division and controversy. Clearly some American business interests have been harmed by NSA practices since they have been revealed by Snowden, and growing opposition to them by many US based multinationals due to the competitive disadvantages they impose provides a wedge for popular interests to insert themselves into the debate. American capital must and will find a fix for this problem in the form of some kind of compromise between state and capital in order to allow their continued monopolization of control over all forms of mass media, but in the meantime we can certainly take advantage of the political opening to press forward demands for real democratization and autonomy from both state and capital of the means of communication, especially the internet.
