lee camp in this exploration lists eighteen ways julian assange has made our world better than it was, and will suffer more than he already has for doing so;
Julian Assange is a dick. It’s important you understand that.
Assange and WikiLeaks revealed the American military’s war crimes,
the American government’s corruption and the American corporate media’s
pathetic servile flattery to the power elite. So, if you’re a member of
our ruling class, you would view those as textbook examples of dickery.
In a moment I’m going to list all the ways Julian Assange changed the world by being a dick.In an evolved and fully realized society, the oligarchy would see
Assange as a dangerous criminal (which they do), and the average working
men and women would view him as justice personified (which they don’t).
We would celebrate him even as the mass media told us to hope for his
downfall—like a Batman or a Robin Hood or an Ozzy Osbourne (the early
years, not the cleaning-dog-turds-off-his-carpet years).
But we are not evolved and this is not Gotham City and average
Americans don’t root for the truth. Many Americans cheer for Assange’s
imprisonment. They believe the corporate plutocratic talking points and
yearn for the days when we no longer have to hear about our country’s
crimes against humanity or our bankers’ crimes against the economy.
Subconsciously they must believe that a life in which we’re tirelessly
exploited by rich villains and know all about it thanks to the
exhaustive efforts of an eccentric Australian is worse than one in which
we’re tirelessly exploited by rich villains yet know nothing about it.
