Julian Assange

Julian Assange seems to have stirred up a hornets nest with his exposure of some of the Worlds (so called) leading politicians. As a result, at time of writing, he is currently detained in the UK awaiting the outcome of a court decision. Which will ultimately determine his short term fate.

I have no doubt that Mr Assanges' life from this point on will never be the same again. WikiLeaks, and Julian Assange represents to many people the hope of a corruption free world.

As a result, those opposed to WikiLeaks and Mr Assange are instantly viewed as suspect of being possibly corrupt.

The politicians who call for Assanges blood, more than likely have more to loose after being exposed by him.

It is in this environment of "instant social networking feedback" that we currently all sit and view this "Fight for Free Speech."

Thanks to twitter, and programs like it, the political transparency game has changed. But the politicans havent caught up with the new rules.

The politicans are running around trying to "filter the net" to take away the new found freedoms of speech. They attempt to close the door after the horse has bolted.

Will Julian Assange become a martyr for the cause of Free Speech?

I fear so. Because I dont think the "system" realizes that the world is watching this issue with such fervor.

So, as a result, I believe that the "system" will happily bring about Mr Assanges destruction. (one way or the other)

When or If that happens, those who notice such things may consider Mr Assanges fate to be an unacceptable outcome.
