- An intensively active international intelligence community;
- A general lack of transparency in the operations of government; and
- A general suspicion held by John Q. Smith and co. that there is a serious disconnect somewhere on all levels of government from local to international between Right Knowing and Wrong Doing. (or maybe the suspicion is that Right Knowing and Wrong Doing are connected?)
Undeniable that Wikileaks creates apparent satisfaction of a particular need for a particularly large portion of the global population---the need for information; about one's government, which is essentially information about one's self. A resource like this is inevitable in an Information Age where war and hostile foreign policy are substantiated by claims derived from an intelligence community that puts all its info chips into a lock box only the kings can see.
Wikileaks presents a check against information czardom. Because truly, we are in an age where it is possible to deliver a true Democracy to people, to inform them and by their informed minds to draw consensus for right action out of right knowing.
The Outlaw Among Us
|Julian Assange, Founder of WikiLeaks|
I take heart knowing humanity's behavior is still linked and subject to natural law. Riverbeds flood, earthquake beds shake, active volcanoes plume red and blow high, all as a natural working of pressure systems. The arival of an outlaw on scene is like this, a sign that something is not right and lots and lots of people agree, overtly or secretly. Of course, being human means attempting mastery over everything, including the earthquake, the flood and even the outlaw.
The Sheriff Hunts The Outlaw
Julian Assange's case is much different. Who knows if he really went crazy ape on a woman or not? But if I were in charge of bringing this Strangelove down, I'd allege the story regardless. Just to be accused is enough to be tainted. And I do not put past the people, who are actually are in charge, that dirty stories might be fabricated to cut into the celebrity of a rising outlaw and make him appear less heroic than he actually is. Though nature's pressures are constant, humans still find better ways to build dams and flood walls and earthquake proof buildings. We apply these natural energies in our human wars to wage dis-information campaigns against our enemies.
Remember who Julian Assange's Enemy is: The Intelligence Community.
Remember: The Intelligence Community scores an A++ in Counter Intelligence (Dis-Information). Remember: Assange raided their closet, they HAVE to take him down at all costs.
Don't make it too easy for them to do this.
Does Access Equal Permission?
As for the super secret government information now flagging like Sunday laundry on the Wikileaks' line---I always turn this question over----does access equal permission?
-in the realm of armies and black ops and cyber ops and guerrilla tactics, access does equal permission. If you can't protect your throat, get out of the grand master's house or don't cry holy rain when he busts your adam's apple.
Julian Assange is not so strange, nor very special in that the need and demand for Wikileaks-type hackproducts and hackers is present and the hackers are out there. Their actions are meant to be called to question---not in the court of laws that they stand defiantly against---but in the court of opinions they hope to capture by revealing themselves and their actions to us. We're meant to look at the whole thing and ask ourselves Why? and try to get a real good answer.
The Outlaw vs. The Sheriff = Happier Sherwood
