WikiLeaks and Libertarianism

  • "[Assange] has said that today he is an adherent of no political or economic philosophy, but if anything he is close to libertarianism in an American sense," reports Lew Rockwell — Julian Assange Is, Of Course, a Libertarian.

  • "[W]ere it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter," said the Founder quoted by Robert Scheer — From Jefferson to Assange.

  • Philip Giraldi, "a former intelligence officer [who] was initially appalled at the leak of a quarter of a million classified documents by someone who had responsibility for protecting them," is now "convinced... that there is a lot of material that deserves a public airing to demonstrate to the American people how Washington is pursuing a senseless policy almost everywhere in the world" — Leaks and Leakers.
