There is no “free press” in the US or UK. Julian Assange being arrested and dragged from the Ecuadorian Embassy by British police should remind us of this. The sad truth is that any semblance of a Free Press has been dead for years.
In 2006, Assange founded the non-partisan, multi-national media project he describes as “a giant library of the world’s most persecuted documents.” The organization (which keeps the slogan “We open governments”) claims a perfect record of document authentication and resistance to all censorship attempts.
Through analysis and publication of censored and restricted official materials, the group has managed to expose high-level secrets involving war, spying and corruption. Their website has published more than 10 million leaked documents, pissing off the powers that (shouldn’t) be on both sides of the aisle.
Assange now reportedly faces extradition to the USSA after his seven-year asylum was just revoked by Ecuador.
Meanwhile Donald Trump, who in 2016 said “I love WikiLeaks” when they released Hillary Clinton’s classified emails, told reporters he has no opinion on the DOJ’s charges against the whistleblower.
While out for a walk with my dog, I unpacked the facts and shared my thoughts on all this in more detail, including the role of Assange in the propaganda machine. I also discussed Snowden and Manning, Cypherpunks and the origins of Bitcoin.
By the way, did you know the IMF just granted a predatory loan to the Ecuadorian government?

For those of us who recognize statism as the problem, perhaps a better motto might be “We close governments.” After all, that’s exactly what the crypto-anarchy revolution is all about.
