In a miserable travesty of justice which is actually no surprise in our decayed western civilization – or rather non-civilization, Julian Assange is about to be extradited to the United States from the UK’s most notorious Maximum-Security Prison, Belmarsh.
For what? He had originally been arrested for “raping” two women in Sweden. Pressed for the truth, the women admitted it was consensual sex, but “he didn’t wear a condom”. They were clearly coerced to accuse Julian Assange with rape. Because Washington wanted Sweden to extradite him.
But Assange escaped to the UK, where he found political asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, under Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa, from 2012 to 2019. Correa’s successor, Lenin Moreno, under US pressure, kicked Assange out from the Ecuadorian embassy in London and under pressure from the US, he was immediately imprisoned in Belmarsh prison camp.
Sweden dropped the charges. But the real “criminals” the US of A, wanted him for high treason, because he disclosed in Wikileaks thousands and thousands of pieces of information divulging to the public high war crimes by the US in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere. War crimes that pale those judged by the 1947 Nuremberg trials. That’s why Julian Assange has to be punished. If indeed extradited, he faces a 273-year prison term (sic).
We live in a dystopian world. And most of us have no clue.
Julian is a hero.
Had he written about crimes – even invented by the West – committed by Russia or China, he might be a candidate for the Peace Nobel Prize. That’s the sick sick world we live in.
This 14 min video (in Spanish) by Ramon Freire, a Chilean Political Analyst, describes extraordinarily well what is happening to Julian. It depicts the world we are living in – the West in particular – all civilization is gone. Ethics are gone. How can we still live with ourselves?
We cannot. The human race has seized being human – as humanity is linked to solidarity. May this be the reason, why it appears so easy to transfer “humans” into “transhumans” — as per Klaus Schwab’s “The Great Reset”?
