I do think Assange was biased in how/when he chose to use the information given to him during the 2016 US elections - but if political bias were a crime then every major US news network would have most of their journalists rounded up with Assange.

There is something much more vile at work here than journalistic bias or misconduct. We are watching fascism emerge, and learning that it doesn't slyly slither up, like a serpent before swiftly attacking its prey, no, it walks in the front door of our country, wipes it's feet on the welcome mat, is welcomed in with open arms and sits down to dinner with your family and friends.

The ideology behind protecting journalists, to use another apt metaphor, is the oil on the gears of democracy. Without that lubricant, that flow of critical information to the people, the machine inevitably grinds to a halt.

Metaphor and crafted phrases aside, no matter what your politics may be, or your opinion of Julian Assange, if you're a US citizen (or anyone that values democracy over fascism, really) then this should seem highly disturbing... show more

It seems leftists are really having a fit over this whole Alabama abortion thing.

I find the whole situation amusing on several levels. There is the usual surface level fake outrage and internet virtue signaling, the Alyssa Milano led "sex strike" is an especially comical example of this.

Yet there is also this whole meta level to it that I see, a kind of reversal. What are the long term implications of a conservative led ban on abortions? (Well, one would hope that it would force women to be more careful, but that doesn't seem very likely to me.) I would expect that the amount of unwanted births would increase. Resulting in more delinquency, crime, more welfare dependents and more Democrat voters. It seems to me the long term effects of this very conservative type legislation would ultimately lead to a decline of conservatism in the long run. It's a bit ironic isn't it?... show more

Democracy is dissatisfying many people around the world

Across 27 countries polled, a median of 51% are dissatisfied with how democracy is working in their country; just 45% are satisfied.
Ouch. This is a tremendous decline in their belief in democracy. What is to make out of this, beside the fact that democracy is comparably impotent when it comes to persuading people about its advantageous role model in terms of equal opportunities. I guess that people like Pete Buttigieg are right when they say that capitalism is ardently undermining the core values of our democracy, namely equal opportunities, a peaceful contribution of resources for everyone on behalf of the market, and a blooming future for descending generations thanks to mutually social participation of everyone towards it.
Most believe elections bring little change, that politicians are corrupt and out of touch and that courts do not treat people fairly. On the other hand, people are more positive about how well their countries protect free expression, provide economic

#Disgusting: United Kingdom sentences Julian Assange to prison

#WikiLeaks founder #JulianAssange received the #maximum #sentence of one year at Southwark #CrownCourt, #London, for breaching #bail conditions seven years ago.




The original case in #Sweden, that the bail conditions were issued for, has been dropped many years ago, because it turned out to be a #hoax. Applying for #asylum without #permission of the #Crown is #illegal in the #UnitedKingdom!

Indian woman calls for men to rape women wearing short dresses

When it comes to sexual violence, women are often shamed for their behaviour which prompts men to assault them. A video going viral on social media perfectly showcases the horrifying mentality that exists surrounding rape and rape culture in India.
There are things that go severely wrong in this world, and women like this belong to the problem. Like, seriously? Calling for men to rape women intentionally and for a reason? This is just... Horrifying, gross, appalling.
The 10-minute video posted on social media shows the young women confronting the older woman in the shopping centre. Indiatoday.in cannot independently vouch for the authenticity of the claims made by the women.

The video shows another woman who was in the store come to the young women's support upon hearing the commotion. She too slams the middle-aged woman for her regressive attitude, reminding her that it is women's right to wear what they want. Even her requests to the older woman to

#DiasporaRebelAlliance #Update

Don't think this whole thing is just a flash in the pan, because it's not. I can't sustain the blitz of last weekend's rebel postings. That was the summation of a long term plan and a weeks nights on the GIMP doing the #ArtHarder to produce graphics. Even though the frequency of Rebel postings might slow a little, rest assured this alliance is here to stay and will remain a permanent addition to the diaspora* landscape. Slow and steady is the pace.

As expected, the opposition has been relentless but we are thankful for our many supporters, both overt and covert. You know w... show more
