Freedom is Sexy: Julian Assange

I support WikiLeaks.

And even though I support WikiLeaks, I can believe that Julian Assange is innocent.

The world has a lot of problems and they need to be reformed. And we only live once. Every person who has some ability to do something about it, if they are a person of good character, has the duty to try and fix the problems in the environment which they’re in.

That is a value, that, yes, comes partly from my temperament. There is also a value that comes from my father, which is that capable, generous men don’t create victims, they try and save people from becoming victims. That is what they are tasked to do. If they do not do that they are not worthy of respect or they are not capable. “

—Julian Assange 21 December, 2010 BBC Transcript: The Assange interview

The man who said this does not sound like a rapist to me.  Maybe he’s mistaken.  Of course, he could be a sociopath (though if he were, there ought to be other victims popping up).   Yet there’s not a breath of any.   Whatever. I don’t know.  People are innocent until proven guilty.

So unless proven otherwise, that’s my guess.  If there is ever is actually a trial in Sweden, maybe it will come out that I guessed wrong.   But I doubt it.

WikiLeaks is fighting for freedom. Julian Assange of WikiLeaks has my vote for the 2010 Sexiest Man Alive.

Because he is a freedom fighter.  It doesn’t get any sexier than freedom.

I’m sure WikiLeaks would appreciate donations.

Over the holidays think too about the young Private Bradley Manning who may well be the biggest hero of the 21st century. Bradley is under military arrest because the US Government thinks he is the one who leaked the “Collateral Murder” video and the Cablegate cables. Think of Bradley over Christmas. If you can spare a bit for his defense fund, or if you can send him a card, that would be good too.

And in Canada there’s another young man who is in jail, not just for the holidays but for the forseeable future because of what he said on Twitter before the #G20 even happened. Canadian activist Byron Sonne has been punitiveley denied bail, which means he will be in jail until his case goes to court, which could be years. Find out more about Byron: Free Byron
You can write to Byron here:
