Something Is Rotten in the State of Iceland

(WikiLeaks) – Over the last few years, WikiLeaks has been the subject of hostile acts by security organizations. In the developing world, these range from the appalling assassination of two related human rights lawyers in Nairobi last March (an armed attack on my compound there in 2007 is still unattributed) to an unsuccessful mass attack by Chinese computers on our servers in Stockholm, after we published photos of murders in Tibet.

We know that Homeland Security considers Ron Paul supporters and other libertarians to be potential terrorists (which is all you need to know about the state’s use of that term).

The Future Will Be Medicated

(InfoWars) – Surfing the net over my cup of coffee, I dug up a mainstream article that painted a grim picture of American mental health.

The 2005 number doubled from 1996, so I hesitate to imagine what it’s at now. Continue reading
