Wow. The conspiracy bits that Assange says really are insane.

Instead, the idea is that increasing the porousness of the conspiracy’s information system will impede its functioning, that the conspiracy will turn against itself in self-defense, clamping down on its own information flows in ways that will then impede its own cognitive function. You destroy the conspiracy, in other words, by making it so paranoid of itself that it can no longer conspire

That's right out there.

It's really wacky stuff. I'll ammend my post with a direct link to Assange's article. There's a little nuance with his concept of conspiracy. He considers anything, no matter how trivial, that isn't public knowledge to be a conspiracy.

Killgore - when you are on, you are on, baby. Great posts today.

Assange is merely a thinking man's mad bomber. As much as I appreciate the antiseptic powers of sunlight, and I believe the government to classify a lot of stuff because the stamp looks cool, I hold Assange himself in the same low esteem I held the Unabomber.

And while TR might have agreed with Assange for a short time, it's worth noting that he came back to more conventional politics as war threatened. And Julian Assange will never match the drive to defend America that Theodore Roosevelt, his sons Theodore Jr, and his cousin Franklin all showed: Those men men kept on working hard for their nation in spite of illness and only stopped when death took them, a death they preferred to failing to do their best for their country. Assange may talk about TR, but he does not have the Roosevelt's dedication and loyalty.

I'm on the fence. My initial response was to be annoyed with his actions. But now, I'm not so sure. I really can't decide if he is damaging democracy, or empowering it.

Assange couldn't hold Teddy, Theodore Jr., and FDR's jockstraps, as it were...
