It's a dark day for human rights when Bibi Netanyahu wins a fifth term & Julian Assange is hauled off in chains for "conspiring to hack a computer." Though given the Pentagon's history of shabby opsec, the password was probably "password" anyway. The arrest of Assange was a message to those who would publish material embarrassing to empire: you have nowhere to hide. If you find a friendly country to shelter you, we will regime-change their government & strong-arm the new guy into selling out his national sovereignty for an IMF loan. Not a peep from the mainstream media, while alt media is too busy gossiping about Assange's possible intelligence agency connections to understand what his arrest actually means for press freedom. Do we even need the ruling class to play divide & conquer anymore, or are we just going to do it to ourselves? Pay attention or suffer the consequences.
