Press**Watch: Support Wikileaks

Categories:

I won't be doing my show this week, but I want to promote the anti-totalitarian work being done by Wikileaks.  Right now the world corporate press is trying desperately to find circumlocutions that would allow them to avoid mentioning the fact that Julian Assange has just been arrested for...having consensual sex without a condom.

Now, supposing that was really done without consulting the women involved (one of whom is associated with the CIA's anti-Cuban corps), he should be confronted.  By the women.  And they should have better sense than to do him again.  But an international arrest warrant?

Today the well-read red is as obsessed as any rabid tea-bagger about the transportation security administration's invasive new screening procedures for airline passengers. In a weird convergence of left and right, huge numbers of Americans turn out to be averse to having strangers subject them to radiation, take naked pictures of them, or touch their junk.

Chris Hedges - Death of the Liberal Class

Despite decades of success, the liberal class has disappeared as a defense against concentrated economic / political power structures.  Long ago co-opted into the 'game' of corporately-controlled modern politics, the gradual corruption and death of the liberal class allows, without impediments, the corporate state to dismantle the final vestiges of protection for citizens once created by more powerful, engaged liberals.
