Confirmed weirdo Julian Assange speaks to the people.
Julian Assange, the editor-in-chief of the whistleblower website WikiLeaks, who currently lives in the Ecuadorian Embassy in UK, said that the United States and other members of the Five Eyes alliance (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom) control the whole world by being in charge of the communications technologies and systems.
“To a degree this is a matter of national sovereignty. The news is all flush with talk about how Russia has annexed the Crimea, but the reality is, the Five Eyes intelligence alliance, principally the United States, have annexed the whole world as a result of annexing the computer systems and communications technology that is used to run the modern world,” stated Julian Assange in his keynote address at the WHD.global 2014 conference, the world’s largest hosting and cloud event.
Discussing surveillance, encryption, web hosting, Assange said there is urgent need to develop autonomous national networks, otherwise, should an economic or political conflict with the US erupt, countries won’t be able to protect their interests and people. “There’s simply too much leverage on nation states,” he pointed out.
Assange emphasized the importance to encrypt all information and update legislation regarding privacy to boost communication security.
He also pointed out that revelations by the former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, that exposed mass surveillance by the US, forced Germany to assert leadership in Europe with renewed strength. “One of the ways to demonstrate its leadership is to demonstrate how someone else does not control you. Here we have an example of Angela Merkel and German society as a whole striving slowly to demonstrate some kind of independence in relation to the United States,” Assange stressed.
In an interview with the BBC’s technology programme Click Assange said that the impulse to create European internet is “quite important.”
The one comment I want to add to what Assange said is that while lying to a girl about wearing a condom is not acceptable and somewhat troublesome, it is nothing compared to becoming a transvesite after you become famous for espionage, and is probably also better than picking a Jew to disclose your secret evidences.
This whole anti-establishment movement is really not very good at all. Really, I can’t think of a more gross possible bunch of weirdos.
Snowden and Assange both need to go to the gym, Greenwald should be deported to Lampshadistan and Manning should be in a mental hospital getting electroshock treatment.
But, I guess it is getting some degree of information about endemic corruption to the people, and that’s better than nothing.
