The 7 most dangerous men in the world

THERE USED TO be an established order to the world. A structure to things. You couldn’t print a gun like a term paper. It was impossible to wreck a nuclear production plant with a few lines of code. Flying robots didn’t descend on you in the dead of night and kill you in your home.

But that order has been upended. Cheap videos in California help spark riots in Cairo. Lynchpins of the Middle East now rant about ‘Planet of the Apes’ in public, and Iranian generals trash-talk David Petraeus over SMS. The world has gone a little haywire — sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Here are our choices for the 15 people most responsible for making it that way.

Who did we miss? What did we get wrong? Sound off in the comments, or find us on Facebook or Twitter (we’ll retweet the best suggestions).

1. Edward Snowden

He is the NSA whistleblower who is the most hazardous man on the internet. The world has known about the NSA’s illegal bulk compilation of phone records; its endeavors to challenge and weaken encryption used not only by common citizens yet by the U.S. government itself; its fight with companies such as Yahoo as well as Google to reach their customer data.
