"President Biden, why are you afraid of Julian Assange? Boris Johnson, Angela Merkel, Manuel Macron, the great and the good, tyrants, tin pot dictators, and democratically-elected leaders, seem to be scared of Julian Assange. The question is, why? Well, we know why, don't we? Through Wikileaks, Julian succeeded in terrorizing Big Brother. He took Big Brother's technologies, constructed a digital mirror out of them - a huge one - and turned it towards the face of Big Brother, so we, who are being watched by Big Brother, can watch Big Brother watching us. Nothing terrifies Big Brother more than that. The beauty of Wikileaks is that it operates like an international, a global letter box, where any whistleblower can post, can place within it, information that concerns all of us. Wikileaks checks it out, they don't even know who it was that deposited that information, this is how they guarantee that no one can find out, if they don't know themselves, and then allows us to know what Big Brother, Big Business, the Big States, are doing on our behalf, behind our backs, supposedly in order to keep us safe, while procuring the greatest insecurity and committing the worst crimes against humanity. This is why you are killing - slowly, intentionally, in a premeditated criminal fashion - Julian Assange's body, every day in Britain's Guantanamo, Belmarsh (Prison). This is why we are looking at you in the eye in the same way that Wikileaks has allowed us to look at Big Brother's eye, and we are telling you in no uncertain terms: you stand accused of criminality, and of murdering a man that made it possible for the rest of us to know your crimes. We shall not rest until those who perpetrate the crimes and those who cover up for them, like President Biden, President Macron, Mrs. Angela Merkel, Mr. Boris Johnson, the rest of those of you in supposed authority, are held to account. Meanwhile, with a smile on our face, we wish Julian Assange a very happy birthday."
