WikiLeaks Doing God’s Work

Assange will presumably get Time magazine’s Person of the Year nod. Hitler and Stalin are past winners. It will be left for us to decide whether to file Assange under good or evil.

Robert Wright on how the the U.S. can respond wisely to the WikiLeaks “fiasco”: “American policymakers will first have to realize that Assange himself isn’t all that important. “If he had never been born, they would still eventually have to adapt to the age of transparency, to a world in which expedient lies to cover expedient collaborations with dubious regimes are a long-term threat to our national security. Sooner or later, America was bound to wake up to the implications of modern technology. Julian Assange just made it a particularly rude awakening.”
