“Assassination is the extreme form of censorship.”
– GEORGE BERNARD SHAW (1856-1950) Irish dramatist
hristine Assange, WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange’s mother, has issued a challenge to peace activists, politicians and journalists around the Earth to act in defense of her son, who she considers has now entered a life-threatening situation.
Anyone who has looked into the situation concerning Julian Assange understands that the man’s unjust, irrational legal persecution of 8-years duration is based on his efforts as publisher of WikiLeaks to end criminal wars of aggression on Earth forever.
For that series of high morality, journalistic actions on his part, Julian Assange has consciously moved forward with full cognizance that severe retribution was always forthcoming and possible, even to the extent which potentially could place him in the same extremely precarious, life-and-death position that men and women of moral conscience through history willingly accepted.
Because Assange willingly accepted the severe consequences of his actions, and because he now faces manifestation of those truly profound personal risks, it becomes necessary for people around the world of varying, similar feelings about improving conditions for humanity vis-à-vis the greatest human issue of war and peace to come to his defense.
Persons aware of Assange’s deteriorating situation might consider life on Earth without people like Julian Assange, – if treated rightly, freed and willing to act for the improving of humanity now and for future generations – when deciding what to do now. Some would describe Assange as a rare genuine hero who has neither committed nor been convicted of any crimes whatsoever, and whose continued imprisonment serves as a historical case study of injustice against an individual which turns the legal foundation of 2018 civilization upside down and totally incoherent.
In other words, what is happening to truth-revealing publisher Julian Assange is simply and obviously wrong from each and every conceivable legal level. For that astonishingly distressing reason, persons in possession of good conscience aware how utterly irrational is his situation have no alternative but to rise up and act powerfully in his defense.
This includes persons of good moral conscience the world over, – because Assange’s worldview and consequent actions have consideration of bettering the health and well-being of all humanity in focus. There is nothing difficult in determining the way Julian Assange is being mistreated – and persecuted for his peace activism over the past 8-years – is simply and clearly wrong. In the same sense, men and women around the world sharing Assange’s morality-based worldview should have no difficulty determining what action(s) are now necessary … natural.
Good people will respond to Julian Assange’s life-threatening situation in a good way. Blessed are the peacemakers.
