Or worrying about poor megalomaniac Julian Assange, who finds himself trapped in a box of his own creation...trying to avoid incarceration for his
(alleged) sexual crimes...and by doing do so, has now probably spent more time confined in mansions and consulates, than he would have spent behind
bars if he had been convicted in Sweden.
As Homer would say..."Doh!"
I saw a man with passion and Spiritual strength - a man who wants freedom - freedom of speech & expression - for his Children and for all
people everywhere. He performs beautifully under pressure. It was obvious he was in a small room at a small desk and confined to a tight camera shot.
Every now and then he looked to his right and I imagine a producer/director or related person was given him a time signal.
I saw a man who wants freedom for himself...freedom to profit from the publishing of stolen videos and classified documents...freedom to sexually
assault women as he chooses, without fear of repercussion....freedom to break the laws of his choosing while hiding behind "declarations" for his
own self preservation.
I see a squirmy little worm of a man, who finally realizes that he is not bigger than the law...who realizes that he has two choices, face his
accusers in a Swedish court of law (who knows, he may be innocent !), or face a self-imposed life-sentence in his "small room at a small desk" in
You are not a martyr Mr. Assange...you are an international fugitive, wanted for questioning in connection with two sexual misconduct cases.
When I compare the world leaders in their expensive suits - teleprompters - 'spin' doctors and retinue of support - all while they have the
freedom to move around the planet and I look at Julian Assange - all I can see is one strong and determined and stylish warrior. More power to him and
his. He is a hero.
Stylish warrior...how poetic. I am sure this is how he sees himself too. He is no hero to me. He is a professional information thief (former
"hacker") and trafficker (Wikileaks), with delusions of grandeur (his ego fed daily by fawning fans such as yourself), who could never get on with
girls until after he became famous and "powerful" - and then (as many men of power do) felt he could anything he wanted with women who were lured in
by his aura.
Oops...sorry Julian...when in Sweden, do as the Swedish do. Unwanted unprotected sex under Swedish law is...rape. You don't have to agree with the
law...nobody really cares if you do...you just have to follow it like everybody else.
You are accused of...rape...in Sweden.
But congrats on sucking so many people along on your fantasy tour...making it all about America, and England, and Human Rights, and Freedom of Speech,
and Torture, and Persecution, and evil Governments...pertaining to your other crimes.
You are no hero, Julian. You are simply a con man...and like all com men, and assorted similar cult leaders, you have loyal followers who think the
sun shines out of...somewhere unpleasant.
I have not fallen under your spell, sorry.
Rape is rape. Jail is jail...whether ones built by Governments - or ones built by your own fitful attempts to avoid justice for your misdeeds.
