Perhaps we will hear more about the cult aspect in his life when he writes his book. Whatever influence it has had, it has probably made him
sympathetic to others who are trapped in such situations as he has been truthful across the board in releasing information in the realms of politics,
commerce, secret societies and religious cults. His group has done quite a bit to release "secret " documents that cult leaders keep from their
membership. If you look at the Leaks mirror sites you will see quite a bit has been exposed on religious cults and particularly Scientology.
No one can accuse him of favoritism toward any religion, cult group, fraternal affiliation, commercial venture, or political group. The WikiLeaks
organization seems neutral as far as having any affiliations that would cause them to compromise their mission. Assange owes no allegiance to protect
any of these type "Brotherhoods".
Where would you find any other journalist who has not taken an oath to some "journalistic society" (Manuscript Society) or pledged some Greek
Fraternity? This guy is on his own. You can't be honest if you are under the authority of an organization that owns you through pledge, blackmail or
reward. I see none of these entities coming into play to prohibit WikiLeaks from being just what you see at face value.
I would venture to say that there is not a paid journalist or media spokesperson who is not pledged to some organization and has something being used
as leverage to make them compliant to obedience.
Assange does not run with the pack.
