^^^ Hope you didn't swallow it...

Don't know much about the guy except I've listened to him once or twice wasn't that impressed. Other stuff though by fairbanks:



This video is the most important thing you can watch when it comes to WikiLeaks and Assange:
Not sure how to embed twitters of whatever...

Fairbanks has another that is on her twit, above that's interesting:

This video was shared with me that @TulsiGabbard tweeted and then apparently quickly deleted. I'm going to guess democratic leadership threatened her. Trump isn't the threat, it's the democratic party. Tulsi makes this clear.

IT PISSES ME OFF, THAT SHE DELETED THIS...

Indeed. But surely "philosopher" is just funny. Now if he can incidentally be for the right thing from over in his corner, there's no need to get in bed with him, just let him keep doing that.

Ah yes, I see. Zizek has kind of redefined philosopher, though I hope not enough to allow Molyneux under that umbrella. Though, I guess it's not really a redefinition. Messy wacko drugged up guy willing to say anything contrarian and perform stunt sophistry for the attention sounds like what philosophers have been going way back, I guess?

I find this admirable and sad:

I apologise unreservedly to those who consider that I have disrespected them by the way I have pursued my case.

This is not what I wanted or intended.

I found myself struggling with terrifying circumstances for which neither I nor those from whom I sought advice could work out any remedy.

I did what I thought at the time was the best and perhaps the only thing that could be done - which I hoped might lead to a legal resolution being reached between Ecuador and Sweden that would protect me from the worst of my fears.

I regret the course that this took; the difficulties were instead compounded and impacted upon very many others.

Whilst the difficulties I now face may have become even greater, nevertheless it is right for me to say this now.

Socrates was in no small measure a fictional character who might possibly have been a likeable guy. Or not. I mean, which philosopher would YOU want to have a beer with?
What comes to us is water run over legions of lips
Like being the aging barmen of the Frolic Room telling stories (all lies) of Bukowski.who was Zizekesque, or maybe the other way around somewhat redefining literary in a similar vein as Zizik philosopy (though arguably that's what the best stuff is, madmen redefining the constructs that would otherwise enslave their vision). Themes drive (would-be) geniuses to the brink. I mean, one guy writes a story about turning into a cockroach that "revolutionizes" fiction, another dude writes a whole book about staring at his hand. WTF? The bigger you become the more shit they make up about you. You know, like Marx's children crawling up his legs begging for food and dying in his lap of starvation as he wrote the Grundrisse.

Irony is everywhere now that everything is undeniably poisoned.

50 weeks in jail for skipping bail? Without any credit for time already effectively served?

They don't bother to even pretend. The fix is in. Next up, they're going to railroad the extradition. I sure hope the legal team is in tip top shape.

Interesting MSNBC poll asking the question: "Should Julian Assange be prosecuted for his involvement in WikiLeaks?"
