Wikileaks

They are attempting to stop the truth by smearing Assange.  And by using sex – how revealing.

WikiLeaks is a fascinating story, and echoes back to Brezhnev in the 60’s / 70’s, when he had to decide whether to let computers into Russian schools or not.  He decided, in the end, to let them in, lest Russia fall behind in engineering.

But once computers were in, glasnost, perestroika, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and Gorbachev were inevitable.

Now we have a very internet savvy person doing what more will do in the future: revealing the underpinning, the underbelly, the hidden cost of feudal transnational corporations running our governments.

Did you hear that MasterCard et al’s sites were hacked and cyberblocked after they cut WikiLeaks off from payment?  The power of the flow of information on the internet may be greater – much greater – than we think.  The internet – if it is not quashed – will be a very good tool for real democracy.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win – Gandhi.

They are starting to fight Assange.  We are all Assange.
