Julian Assange - our future

Julian Assange is highly intelligent, evolved human being. Since the ridiculous accusations of floozies were used to curtail his freedom and endanger his future, he is doing his best to defend himself.
Many have been feeding of his alleged notoriety and his problems.
How daft and naive can you be if you don’t comprehend what this trial is regarding? Sweden is one of the most debauched and sexually liberated countries in the world. To allow trumped up charges be taken so far, is a crime in itself. How can you say you were assaulted by your consensual bed partner, because he was not using protection? How can this be considered as violence or rape? Are we all insanely mad? We are living in a world rotten to a core, where real sex crimes are going unpunished on daily bases. To deprave this man of freedom, or any other, under such circumstances, is a travesty of justice.
Instead of asking for it to be thrown out of court to start with, the lawyers are running ludicrous gauntlet of explaining the minute details to the rest of the world. To be stripped of human rights on bizarre charges, because you happened to be leading a team who opened Pandora’s Box, is a warning to us all. How much more policing and surveying of our private lives are we prepared to accept lying down?
Julian Assange forgoes his personal comforts, having home and a family, for the sake of freedom of speech, defence of real democracy and right of everyone to know the truth. By doing so, he is putting himself to the forefront of attack by the ‘mutual admiration club’, running OUR lives. He represents all of us, the ‘little people’, nobody cares about. We are the ones, abused and used by the corrupt governments of the world, offloading arms and bullets on the battlefields of their choice. We are the socially unaware, moronic, satisfied with booze, football, pornography and stuff, society. Too many are throwing stones into the glass house that is Julian Assange. If we don’t get a grip and start upgrading the quality of humans, populating this world, we will perish. What will history say about us?

"What will history say about us?"

They reaped as they sowed.
