18 ways Julian Assange changed the world (by Lee Camp) - [PEACE]

"Changed the world" is marketing hyperbole. Items 
listed are worthy but hardly planetary-grade, 
indeed could be disparaged as fake-like headline 
news. Must point out "WikiLeaks" is a 
hyperbolizing marketing term, a successful 
branding campaign composed of two reconfigured, stolen, promotional terms

To be sure, copying predecessors, Martin Luther 
(and namesake King) posted a list which became a 
highly successful protestant branding campaign 
against the dominant only one true "catholic" 
faith and its erection-architecture-obsessed 
pederastic church, branding the proliferating, 
crowd-funding piles with 
namesaking-saints-listing to lipstick globalizing 
slaughterhouse murderers which inseminated this 
spoiled brat of a forever-bragging-branding-USA nation.

Credit, modestly stated, is most certainly due to 
Assange and his mostly anonymous cohorts for 
challenging USA and Four Others-branding their 
global slaughterhouse military with spy-sky 
lipsticking national security (C)(R) threats. And 
it may be necessary to exaggerate to gain 
attention against the vast disinformation 
hyperbolizing apparatus, lately the Internet, to 
turn the autocratic weaponized dupery into a 
counter, comical, dupery, even if only a pinprick.

Fine, then, exaggerate, lie, hide, valorize, but 
prepare for casualties, "innocents" imprisoned, 
stigmatized, murdered -- can it not be overstated 
the mass murderous policies of national security 
religion are ubiquitous, the tiny killings by 
armed individuals would not show up on a chart of 
what nations do, mass-scaled, to anonymous humans.

Lee Camp understates what Assange and company 
could represent, almost as if he dare not arouse 
the collaeral murdering giants any more than 
journalists and "leakers" do, that is exhibit 
fear and trembling, in hapless literature, as 
Kierkegaard did of the holy power to condemn and 
urge killing faithless dissenters.
