    No, most of us just disagree with Assange and recognize him as a thug based on his actions and hypocrisy. Forgive me if I doun't sound very humble, but I say this to disprove your assertion that I am not doing much with my life. Right now I'm a junior in a private university with a 3.0+ GPA majoring in molecular biology. I'm have plans to go to pharmacy school and I will be taking the PCAT in January. I work as a pharmacy technician and I'm a full time student. I don't envy Assange, I don't disagree with him because of an inferiority complex. Me, and many others, disagree with him because of the beliefs we hold and the actions that Assange has committed. I wouldn't judge us all that way simply because you don't understand our point of view.

    I believe there was something insightful Irving Kristol once said when asked about the Man of the Century and who would be remembered and why. Some of the negative examples came up, and Kristol believed that with time their legacies would fade. I'll paraphrase from memory the most important part....

    "...sure they destroyed a lot, but they created very little."

    Seeking fame and destruction is not contributing to society and the global public. For that, there is very little to envy.

    Or it could be we just don't like people trying to harm our country. Or maybe we don't like how he is playing his blackmail game. Or it could be we actually have morals and look down on those without. I wonder which it is....

    Hint: it ain't the inferiority one, and is a combination of the other ones.

    I do not think he necessarily is a good man or the way he is releasing such information is a good thing, however, I do think that private information that affect the population should be kept open and public. If Bank of America did something that they do not want public, it should be released to show even companies must be held accountable for their actions. I do not see how it is harming America, just those in charge. It is benefitting the populace by an attempt to make the government that should be in place to be for the people, to have the information open to the people.

    I'm not sure how he's playing a blackmailing game? He's just releasing these documents willingly.

    Though I like the idea behind Wikileaks, they have not lived up to what I expected. I keep expecting they will come out with a bombshell that will put someone in prison... but instead they just try to humiliate the U.S.

    I'll keep reading what they release though... at least until they run out of things to release.

    If there is wrong doing in the documents (which I bet there are) then hell yes. About time someone took on the banks and financial institutions who have ruined the economies of so many countries.

    Clearly NO, because Wikileaks are spies and traitors!

    Oh the ignorance of the American conservative movement.. again, how can "Wikileaks" be traitors when most if not all are non Americans? How can they be spies when they have done their "deed" outside the US?

    Given that the banks just spent two years screwing us over and making record profit over the harm they caused. Why not?
