[ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
[ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
[ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.
Yes, that's the alternative I originally recommended and that we have
been discussing Larry Rosen's objection to. The agreement between D
and O might be one designed to create a fiduciary relationship, of
special trust and accountability, to which the legal system applies
uniquely high standards of responsibility. It's this fiduciary
relationship with a third party which entitles you to the intervention
of mandatory orders to perform promises.
I don't understand why this is even relevant to the issue.
You seem to presume that an ordinary contract between D and O
is not sufficient, but you didn't explicitly say that.
Is an ordinary contract between D and O not sufficient?
If not, why not?
