What’s the truth about Julian Assange. I don’t know but there are different possibilities. Here are three competing narratives about Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.
Narrative 1: Assange is a criminal, a dangerous hacker, revealing secrets that puts our security at risk. He has escaped from rape charges in Sweden and should be put to justice for all of his crimes.
Narrative 2: Assange is a hero seeking and revealing the truths about the world. The rape charges from Sweden are false and just a way to get him exported to the U.S. so they can put him away to rot in a prison somewhere ugly.
Narrative 3: Assange is controlled opposition with controlled leaks and controlled whistleblowers. He and WikiLeaks may have revealed real secrets but that is just as a cover for all the really dark secrets that they are not revealing.
Look at the evidence. Use critical thinking. And make up your own mind.
