The Making of The Great American Snuff Film

CableGate's Grand Illusion

Governments around the world want you to believe something utterly fantastic. They want you to believe that the actions of Julian Assange pose a great danger to you and everyone else on the globe.

Hillary Clinton spoke for them all when she said that WikiLeaks disclosures are "not just an attack on America's foreign policy interests, [but] an attack on the international community: the alliances and partnerships, the conversations and negotiations that safeguard global security and advance economic prosperity."

Nothing could be farther from the truth. Assange's act is not an attack on the peoples of the world. Quite to the contrary, it is an attack on a very narrow group of people. It is an attack on the world's governing elites, because it shows them for what they truly are: liars, hypocrites, schemers, incompetents, egomaniacs, thieves, and murderers.

Please remember that these are the same people who cast themselves as the custodians of public good. These are the same characters who routinely position themselves as paragons of virtue and wisdom. These are the same leaders who demand people's obedience, allegiance, and money.

Assange let the cat out of the bag. This is a good thing. People's eyes need to be opened, because we trust our governments way too much. People should know what their leaders are made of. The WikiLeaks revelations will no doubt come as a shock to those who think that governments are populated by angelic and benevolent public servants who always act in the public interest. The sad state of the world today is to a great degree due to the fact that too many harbor this belief.

I am not at all defending Julian Assange, the guy is a dirt bag, but there is a lot more to this than meets the eye. The corruption in our government is like a cancer, it is literally killing the Republic. It's already got a stranglehold on the life blood of our country, the engine of our economy. We need to cut it out.
