    He's pissed off just about everyone, is in hot oil up to his eyeballs, and he fears for his life; rightly so.

    How long will he live?
    .
    depends. i think i heard something about him threatening to release documents on the relationship between the russian government and russian corporations.


    if that is the case, then his lifespan has just decreased dramatically.

    the way our death penatly is currently structured leaves it not actually a threat of death. the deterrent of the potential of being killed can be better seen in the number of people who continue with a rape/robbery after the victim points a gun at them.

    That's why I view it as morally dubious for me to support his execution, but it's not morally dubious for you to support it, because I assume you don't accept my premises. If you DID accept my premises, and still wanted him killed, then your position would be morally abhorrent.

    How long do I think he'll live? Given that he has half the world's governments out to get him and much of the corporate world (who are probably less forgiving), I'd give him about a decade at most unless he goes into hiding, or quits his job and goes someplace far far away.

    Much as I'd prefer it otherwise, the mass of the citizenry are panicky cattle; this is part of the reason we need a government in the first place. In order to perform its necessary functions, the government keep many of its actions secret-- both from other nations and from irrational elements within its own jurisdiction. We would need to be a far more advanced people before we could live with complete government transparency, and ironically the more advanced we become, the less pressing demand there would be for such.

    Ya know this is always the excuse of those that don't want transparency. I've yet to see any real evidence that it is true....of course I've yet to see a transparent government. :P
