Something Kaz and I agree on. 

Tom, at the very least give me a reason to care about your link.

You dropped another link and ran.

You sound intelligent, congratulations.

You're too cowardly to try to sound as intelligent with your own words.

I don't really blame you with libertarians about. It's a shark tank for sure. They'll exalt Rothbard, but if you make a case yourself, for or against anything, it'll be torn asunder in five seconds.

So you drop fish pellets in the shark tank and run.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Thanks, it's something everyone should think about. If it's criminal to expose criminal activity on the part of governments, governments can continue to engage in criminal activity without fear of exposure.

Another interesting thing about the Assange affair is the response by the mainstream media.  Their line has generally been: I support freedom of the press (who am I, a monster?)  But Assange is a disgusting human being who deserves everything he gets.  He's angry, smelly, entitled, ungrateful, etc. etc.  He is in violation of the sanctity of the idea of the rule of law.

In other words, support something in the abstract, but absolutely condemn one of the few people who keep it alive.

This is almost humorous, because the biggest victim of Assange is arguably the media themselves.  WikiLeaks is the living proof that anyone in possession of truly explosive material, that exposes evil at the heart of the world system, doesn't trust any of the mainstream media to publish it.
