Julian Assange

#1

While we’re all still shocked by the reports about Julian Assange been arrested by Scotlnad Yard, the IMF approved 4.2 billion USD loan to Ecuador.

As like they just walked in with the cheque, and left with Assange, what a shame!

And when I read the USA indictment against him, the only thing left is just plain journalism! And maybe that he tried some passwords.

If he really will be extradited and imprisoned in US, this will be another milestone of the new wolrd order, constructed by some small elite circles of neoliberal fuckers since more than 100 years now, writing books like " Social Control , The Principles of Sociology" (Edward Alsworth Ross, 1901) or Public Opinion ( Walter Lippmann, 1920) and led to a postfactic society of fang capitalism where no morality have space.

Hows Trumps form not recognising wikileaks when most of his 2016 campaign was reliant on it, always new he was a bald faced liar , this just cements him into the fuckwit he truly is.

As for assange, he showed the world the real horror side of the war machine and political agenda and should be commended for it not imprisoned. That book he was reading Gore Vidal had a good quote by him regarding the US, “The United States Of Amnesia” No disrespect to US folk here or elsewhere, im talking more about the Gov and the sheep who blindly follow them, same for my country.

Its actually a film too,

I just deleted a long reply…instead, can we just leave politically based issues off the forum. The flame wars can get strong with these things… Let’s stick to riceing Linux.

I’d love to have a real in depth discussion about this as it is one of my main interests as well but our forum isn’t the place for it. Two things guaranteed to spark a forum war, religion and politics.

@s7l, regarding the forum rules, there is a link in my signature :smiley:

With a cool mind, we think better, the story of Assange is very worrying, today our concept of democracy is based on the power of money, this man is not said to be a liar, but only that he should not speak, to maiora FREEDOM

I don’t want to cause a debate on this forum, for that’s not my intention. But, the irony of this is that both religion and politics on this situation are tied together, as stated in the article in my post. It’s actually kind of creepy… :thinking:

Maybe I don’t really know what wikileaks is, but you tell me that it centers on religion, with the arrest and the American accusations against Assange?
Maybe I lost a piece of history

Hi Ector,

from sevenday4 link.

In particular, Moreno calls out Assange’s intervention “in the internal affairs of other states.” In January 2019 WikiLeaks released a collection of confidential Vatican documents, and Moreno says Assange’s activity around this time suggests he is still involved in WikiLeaks.

You are correct and they should always be treated as separate things. But I know intentions are that no one wants an argument but inevitably it happens :smiley:

I hate the Vatican and the Italian Catholic Church, and as you know as a Christian I became an atheist, I assure you that in the history of Assange’s arrest in England the Vatican does not center, here it is only America that Assange wants in prison.
