This article also appeared on Wikileaks itself in French, in August 2012, at the "Le Grand Soir" in Paris and in numerous other French publications.
The current, daily more bizarre international situation, however, how absurd it may sound, is comparable to the days and the weeks, the years before French Revolution.
A desperate financial crisis, which was self-made, knitted, an always deferred reform, some sort a blockade, not only on the life worthy issue of incumbent climate changes of the world, this progress could have served all people.
And all, what is already bitter enough, history has repeated, this time, in our days. However, the smug, greedy bankers, shady business leaders, strange political, some of the Constitution completely indifferent currents, an all-dominant intelligence, an uncontrollable power gadget, which acts apparently out of a never-ending, infinite resource against a hostile, every day potentiating crisis.
Once it is the digital spirit of Osama bin-Laden, his invisible terrorist assessed successor, El-Kaida. Then suddenly, because they can get hold of one, new, sudden enemy.
The US-Administration, who distracts from other problems that affect us all, found the foe: Julian Paul Assange and his organization Wikileaks. Now Julian Paul Assange, who is declared a public enemy number 1, only because he and his organization published true exhibits, for all the people, made them accessible to many nations. This time it's not the French people, that once so hated Marie-Antoinette. But it's the same situation, only more than 200 years later.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau quoted, not without self-interest, in his autobiography "The Confessions" (from the French original text) :
« Je me rappelai le pis d'une grande princesse-all à qui l'on disait que les paysans n'avaient pas de pain, et qui répondit: qu'il mangent de la brioche. »
Translation: "Finally I remembered the makeshift of a great princess, the people said, they have had no bread, and she answered: Let them eat cakes!"
Normally, one would be attempted to believe, that even the powerful leader of this world would have learned something of all its ineffable authority, no, it's how it was. How it used to be.
Also, in the Bastille in Paris they were quite happy to torture extensively, the same in the many outposts all over France in those days. Mainly people, who opened their mouth, rebelled against the autocratic system of that time, degenerate royalist lords, the usual inhabitants of Versailles. Many people on this wide, wonderful world, even in the years of growing pluralism, are still fed instead of bread with weapons, fear and hopelessness, with death and disease.
Probably this is the "cake" of the 21st century.
It's never about the good-hearted people of the American, for what they gave to the world. These many nations, that have been created with sweat and blood to one. The GIs liberated Germany from the Nazis, they gave them hope by JFK, "I am a Berliner ". Everyone knows. The spirit of liberty, who flew to the moon, proved pioneering spirit.
America gave us so many things, not only chewing gum, large automotive dreams, Hollywood, Hamburger culture, the joy of swing, rock and roll were only a few of those.
For many the new home, Ellis Island, the Empire-State Building, New York, San Francisco, cities, settlements of superlatives were created.
People, great personalities were produced in America. However, Wikileaks and their founder Julian Paul Assange, stormed as in a contemporary avatar of the modern history the new Bastille, the U.S. Government, all the evil, dictator thoughts, sometimes even ridiculous manic minutes of the oh-so-usual-eloquent diplomats.
Now, Americans should ask: Why is that?
Lived the displaced, forgotten problems. Someone must do so, without doubt. Back to the people, to the genuine nations in power. It was long enough the people of this world, the incumbent, closed-class used own made policies for the financial, senseless wars, for further environmental destruction for the very personal goals of the installed disgusting satellites.
Plenty of willing vassals, an inscrutable network of secret diplomacy, abductions, torture, murder, intrigue and life in apparently undemocratic manners. Everything in the disguise of higher goals that many, most people on this planet, could not understand anymore. There occurred a certain, even some 30 years ago, unthinkable mechanism, which has now thrown the world in an undeclared cyber war by some organization called Anonymous.
They can ´t stop by militant attacks, like in cyber guerrilla warfare, the incredible criminalization of Paul Julian Assange, just show the front, allow all involved parties to proceed further. Radical U.S. politicians, or those who think they are, autocratic self-actors, the mislead American dream of prosecutor, judge and executioner in one focused person.
The hatred is a paralyzing, serves unconditionally not to all the people of the world. It is time that America takes position, not in front of the politicians, however to the people of this earth.
For others, such as sadists, Assange already is one, who is walking the green mile, towards to the rooms of their so ugly executions. Solved by now in the closed, political world. Assange seems to be on the tube of lethal injection. The making of is just made now. Julian Paul Assange is the worldwide martyrs. Now, even that he has not earned. Not yet. Systematically, all in years, decades exploited mature channels are used to stop the truth, which Assange published on Wikileaks. To cover up. What shall be prevented or what should be avoided?
Does anyone in the United States fear the political meltdown?
The steady moral slump of the former superpower, the former living and giving democracy in a meaningless international community which declined by some hateful operators, a system, that was installed after 9/11. A war government that sought their own questionable authority.
Has Wikileaks papers or documents that tell a different, but much more logical, credible truth about the following, to this day occurred events?
The question is: why the superpower is still at war? Why the spirit in a bottle, bin Laden, has not been presented a regular court?
He may comment on the allegations.
A state, that clearly has the smartest military in the world, the god-like CIA and other servants is surely enabled to find, locate an Osama- bin- Laden. The policy of the last decade, the United States moves to a post-modern, semiroyalistic, even in seemingly embedded democracy, dictatorship, which is pursuing its secrets for good, stubborn reason. As in a monarchical absolutism, which develops like a bolt down. But begin to insulate the allies. Reported good friends of the Americans, the Swedes know no further: Obviously, the prosecutor Marianne Ny made the bill without an emerging new generation of thinking men worldwide. At least she has become famous, what her future career certainly does not hurt. At first it was resumed a depraved process, because the whole description of the rape of the very strict Swedish law was to steer in any direction and it is still. Sadly, enough all over the world. Undoubtedly the investigating prosecutor would not complain after. The general awareness of a strange, but well-known gut feeling, the coherent interference by political forces against Assange have become may be active. But that would be rude to Mrs Ny and influence on the process of the Swedish judiciary. But the rumor mill says: it was before stopped, because of lack of evidence.
Assange has mutated into a global, growing morale with his arrest. Although he and Wikileaks wistleblowed on the disclosure of extraterrestrial flying devices, the imagination of ordinary citizens of this world is not ready for this further story,which cannot be proved right or wrong anyway.
But while it seems, also feels, like the previously agreed delivery of Assange, even with the total forget of the usually competent US authorities and their own, yet so precious Constitution of the wise fathers of America, Assange and his ideas of a better world is running out of time. But deliveries happened more frequently in recent years, with apparent system, like we all, sadly enough know. Suspects were flown in own jets of the linked secret machinery. Some, a few, not the American people, installed this ugly system. But Assange found the way to a united, notwithstanding, very rough revolution in which he, day in and day out turns to the tragic hero of his own. Some previous actions were not well considered. He certainly is not the founder of a secret service of the people. Of these much-publicized ideas one must separate, but he is the pioneer in a new and different time. Back, when the French declared the revolution, agreed some few wordings of certain inviolable rights. These apply to Assange and Wikileaks. These are the guiding principles of modern democracies, these are the genuine model of all human and democratic principles. The following articles are the work of the French Revolution, were never as current, everywhere, anybody from Jefferson to Obama so respected guiding principles, which applied to our time and the different actors in these moments. Just to remind the original French text as well:
«Les hommes naissent et demeurent libres et égaux en droits. Les distinctions sociales ne peuvent être fondées que sur l'utilité commune. »
People are born free and equal, in rights and will remain so. Social distinctions may be founded only upon the general good.
«Le but de toute association politique est la conservation des droits naturels et de l'homme imprescriptibles. Ces droits sont la liberté, la propriété, la sāreté et la résistance à l'oppression. »
The aim of every political association is the preservation of the natural and inalienable human rights. These are the right to liberty, the right to property, the right to security and the right to resist oppression. Why shouldn’t Wikileaks been entitled to a political, internationally operating organization, that justified their existence by having the transparency of the documents, not their own procurement proven? As those, who claim, that information so vehemently, because those, who must fear for the power, strike out wildly. Julian Assange is made modern super-spy against the confrontational American. That would be too much honor for both sides. He is a journalist with an unusual claim, has broken new ground in terms of the amount of the data. Also for the Wikileaks Sympathizers the law of resistance against oppression in modern feudalism is active. If it remains non-violent. It is a cynical, especially to compare Assange with bin-Laden. Ultimately, the ideas of Assange to publish the papers are existing, evidential, usually in the U.S. living human rights. The very normal freedom of press.
»Le principe de toute souveraineté réside essentiellement dans la nation, nul corps, nul individu ne peut exercer d'autorité qui n'en émane expressément. »
The source of all sovereignty resides essentially in the Nation. Nobody and no individual may exercise any authority which does not emanate expressly from it.
All power comes from all of us, not from an established sort. But from the peoples of the earth, which is probably already forgotten, this extraordinary little something for the sovereignty of the people. Otherwise no one would invest time and power in a despicable hunt for the, made by some lawless, Assange and his fellow co.’s at Wikileaks.
« La liberté consiste à faire tout ce qui ne nuit pas à autrui: ainsi l'exercice des droits naturels dede chaque homme n'a de bornes que celles qui assurent aux autres membres de la société la jouissance de ces mêmes droits. Ces bornes ne peuvent être déterminées que par la loi. »
The freedom must do anything that does not harm others: the exercise of the natural rights of each man has no limits, except those, which assure to the other members of society enjoy the same rights. These limits can only be determined by the law.
Effectively, Assange with Wikileaks, tried only to give the other members of society their natural rights back. Information of all kind must be acknowledged openly. It can’t be, that there is information restricted to only a few on this planet.
»La loi n'a le droit de les actions que défendre nuisible à la société. Tout ce qui n'est pas par la loi, loi ne peut défendu être empêché, et nul ne peut être contraint à faire ce qu'elle n'ordonne pas. »
The law cannot prohibit only those acts which are harmful to society. Everything that is not prohibited by law, must not be prevented, and no one can be forced to do what does not command it.
»La loi est l'expression de la volonté générale. Tous les citoyens ont droit de concourir personnelle ment, ou par leurs Représentants, à sa formation. Elle doit être la même pour tous, soit soit qu'elle protégé, qu'elle soit punisse. Tous les citoyens, étant à ses yeux Egaux, sont également à toutes admissibles dignité, places et emplois publics, selon leurs capacités et sans autre distinction que celle de leurs vertus et de leurs talents. »
The law is the expression of general will. All citizens have the right to participate personally or through their representatives in its design. It must be the same for all, whether it protects or punishes. All citizens are equal before him, they are alike, according to their ability, and without other distinction than that of their virtues and talents to all public, registered offices and positions.
The careful observer must now reckon with a subsequent "Lex Assange" so that confirms the view which is so vehemently demanded for his punishment for the most natural things in the world. The sharing of power with citizens, with the people. With us, with everyone.
«Nul homme ne peut être accusé, arrêté ni détenu que dans les cas déterminés par la loi, et selon les formes qu'elle a prescrites. Ceux qui sollicitent, expédient, exécutent ou font exécuter desdes ordres arbitraires, doivent être punis; mais tout citoyen appelé ou saisi en vertu de la loi doitdoit obéir à l'instant; il se rend coupable par la résistance. »
No one shall be accused, arrested or imprisoned except in the cases specified by law and only in the forms prescribed by him. Who requires arbitrary orders, issues, carry out or can be punished, but any citizen summoned or arrested by law to obey, immediately, by resistance makes it an offence.
A better example can’t be in a few words, if we all understand calls we receive from America now. But these words have been said more than 200 years before. Not created yesterday, but so well known. Also stated proudly in the U.S. Constitution.
» La loi ne doit établir que des peines strictement et évidemment nécessaires, et nul ne peut être puni qu'en vertu d'une loi établie et promulguée antérieurement au délit et légalement appliquée. »
The law was to prescribe only the punishments that are strictly and evidently necessary, and no one can help but be convicted of a law adopted prior to the commission of the offence proclaimed and legally applied.
America's policy is to find a way to continue to criminalize Assange´s idea, to correctified the embarrassing situation on Americas policy.
» Tout homme étant présumé innocent jusqu’à ce qu’il ait été déclaré coupable, s’il est jugé indispensable de l’arrêter, toute rigueur qui ne sera pas nécessaire pour s’assurer de sa personne doit être sévèrement réprimée par la loi. »
If every man is presumed innocent until he was found guilty, must, should be considered necessary to arrest him, any hardship that is not necessary to ensure his person must be severely curbed by law.
The concluding is apparently for Assange, he is not guilty without having committed a crime.
At least the officials have yet to knit evidence together, finally to close all those ideas, streams who demand progress, evolution of democracy. It is most likely that the administration wants to take any opportunity to refuse, eliminate the influence on future leaders. Accordingly, the grandiose, human and honest American Declaration of Independence of 1776, the necessary civil war to abolish slavery, would have been enormous crimes. Has anyone ever ventured to the marvelous Abraham Lincoln or to the model of freedom, George Washington, treason, espionage or other acts of absurd crimes. Just because these great ideals of a new, coming time, the living truth was to spread in their times?
« Nul ne doit être inquiété pour ses opinions, même religieuses, pourvu que leur manifestation nénai trouble pas l'ordre public établi par la loi. »
No one should be prosecuted for his opinions, even religious, provided their manifestation does not interfere with the established Law and Order.
It appears again, it is time to point out, that we all have the right, the ability to comment on the needs, to actively participate to make this public a growing democracy, this wonderful creature of democratic manners must be taken care of. Where Assange has disturbed the law? He tried to restore it.
« La libre communication des pensées et des opinions est un des droits les plus précieux de l’homme : tout citoyen peut donc parler, écrire, imprimer librement, sauf à répondre de l'abus dede cette liberté, dans les cas déterminés par la loi. »
The free communication of ideas and opinions is one of the most precious human rights, every citizen may therefore speak, write, and print, subject to his responsibility for the abuse of this freedom in cases specified by law.
This can be explained well by itself, but the law is just disturbed, because America feels the war is more important than peace is. It's about a war which is unwinnable, which was lost, before it began.
« La garantie des droits de l'homme et du citoyen nécessite une force publique : cette force est donc instituée pour l'avantage de tous et non pour l'utilité particulière de ceux auxquels elle est confiée. »
The safeguarding of human and civil rights requires a public force, which violence is used to benefit all and not for the benefit of those to whom it is entrusted.
The problem of America to exploit the bitter violence for years for their own political goals. Therefore, Assange has become known at all. What has happened to the human rights in Abu Garhib, in the occupied territories of the war, in the war zone itself? In Guantanamo? From special civil rights, someone does not want to talk, they do not exist in this context. At least not in the structure with the U.S. Strategy and its declared enemies. A war needs to find a natural end. It's bad enough that it started.
» Pour l'entretien de la force publique et pour les dépenses d'administration, une contribution commune est indispensable. Elle doit être également répartie entre tous les citoyens, en raison dede leurs facultés. »
For the activity of the public authorities and for administrative costs, a general tax is essential and must to all citizens, be in accordance with their ability to spread evenly.
For each child it is now clear, that the war did cost money, the public sector in the United States needed more than was. So now all be affected. It is therefore reasonable as Assange plans to publish on the banks, what people would otherwise never see. We do not need all war profiteers.
» Chaque citoyen a le droit, par lui-même ou par ses représentants, de constater la nécessité de la contribution publique, de la consentir librement, d'en suivre l'emploi et d'en déterminer la quotité, l'assiette, le recouvrement et la durée. »
All citizens have the right to own or through their representatives, the need to establish a public tax, to consent freely to monitor their use and to determine its proportion, basis, collection and duration.
We all pay the price against an enemy, whose brutal face we know only by the devastating images of 9/11, against whom or what is being fought? Assange has made this more transparent, an apparently useless, huge war that has come completely out of control.
» La société a le droit de demander compte à tout agent public de son administration. »
The society has the right to ask a public official accountable for his administration.
This did Assange, Wikileaks for so many people in this world, because all this is forgotten, the leaders were too good for the truthful answer of so many questions.
« Toute société dans laquelle la garantie des droits n´est pas assurée, ni la séparation des pouvoirs déterminée, n'a pas de Constitution. »
A society in which backed the guarantee of rights and not the separation of powers is not defined, has no constitution.
Assange just wanted to restore, because it seems, he has only informed publication surely, he did not to make any profit. We all require, adore Wikileaks, we take all this progress. We all were to big cowards to take out the first step of a peaceful revolution. Julian Paul Assange opened our eyes. Not with the documents, but with the procedures followed. We also do not need any U.S. Administration, which would run in critical situations against their own constitution. No one has the right for censorship. This has been confirmed by the UN Human Rights Commission. Assange should go as a free man to Sweden. Also, this skirmish of America should come to an end. In Sweden, the allegations should be addressed, if there are any. Not how an individual makes a revolution, even we all know the model. It is enough if we understand the experience and wisdom of the most popular revolt today and act accordingly.
