Man, this dude is a trainwreck.
Wikileaks' Julian Assange's promiscuous lifestyle revealed: Jemima Khan look away now! | Mail Online
He's like Michael Moore with only one chin.
"Myths and legends die hard in America. We love them for the extra dimension they provide, the illusion of near-infinite possibility to erase the narrow confines of most men's reality. Weird heroes and mould-breaking champions exist as living proof to those who need it that the tyranny of 'the rat race' is not yet final." - Hunter S. Thompson
Ahhh, gotta love it when the cosmos slaps down a big old load of irony on someone.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
"For what is Evil but Good-tortured by its own hunger and thirst?"
- Khalil Gibran
The lawyers do have a point... It may be extremely hard to say this, but we shouldn't stoop to Assange's level and violate his privacy rights. It makes us like him. However, I can't deny that I really like seeing that his info was leaked regarding his promiscuity. I big dose of hypocrisy on Assange's part tastes very refreshing.
Tired of elections being between the lesser of two evils.When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. -Socrates
The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Privacy in general is slowly going extinct. (edited to add: This isn't something I am particularly happy about, but it is also something that I think it is futile to fight against very hard. The speed of technological advancement has made privacy more and more scarce and I really don't think that any law or regulations designed to protect privacy will stop criminals - private, corporate or governmental - bent on invading our privacy for various reasons. You can't fight fate, and those who try end up causing more harm than good.)
Perhaps, instead of crying about it we ought to concentrate of finding new ways to protect folks from those things which we used to rely on privacy to protect them from.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
