We are now living in a world where you have to keep your head down and your mouth shut.
Think about all the things we now know because Wikileaks published information that governments did not want us to know. THAT is why Assange has been arrested. He pissed off a lot of powerful people. I would be surprised if he lives long enough to go on trial in the US.
I think he is a dead man walking.
The mainstream media is an extension of government. That is why they are cheering Assange’s arrest. That is their job. To sell Assange’s arrest to the public. To smear Assange in the public eye. Manufacture consent.
