Julian Assange vs Conspiracy as Governance

Assange’s daring manifesto to undermine ‘Conspiracy as Governance’ Retweet

An Update on our Pardon Assange action levels appears below. 

Are conspiracies against the American people a bad thing? Like, if there were actors using the government to further their ends, at the expense of taxpayers and even the lives of U.S. servicemembers, don’t we have a right to know?

In December, ’06 Julian Assange published a manifesto: “Conspiracy as Governance.” His theory was simple. There are conspiracies; people secretly trying to get away with things. They are almost always in bed with the government. And there was something the conspirators could not tolerate…

“The more secretive or unjust an organization is, the more leaks induce fear and paranoia in its leadership and planning coterie.”

Assange had a plan of attack. And he provided a clear example of how it would affect the conspiracy known as political parties.

“Consider what would happen if one of these parties gave up their mobile phones, fax and email correspondence—let alone the computer systems which manage their [subscribers], donors, budgets, polling, call centres and direct mail campaigns. They would immediately fall into an organisational stupor and lose to the other.”

Secretive organizations, conspiracies, have one big fear. That is having their communications leak. “Organizational stupor” was making conspiratorial communications harder.

“This [fear of leaks] must result in minimization of efficient internal communications mechanisms (an increase in cognitive ‘secrecy tax’) and consequent system-wide cognitive decline resulting in decreased ability to hold onto power as the environment demands adaptation.”

Assange’s mission was to send shivers up the spine of the powerful. Far from being the enemy of a common soldier, sailor, or Marine, Assange was in many ways their protector. And by that, I mean, he wasn’t the one sending those folks into harm’s way for the profit or benefit of others. He was outside the conspiracy, causing it trouble. Indeed…

There’s no way to calculate the lives Assange SAVED because the next inter-state conspiracy couldn’t communicate with alacrity. Soldiers were simply never sent to die because the conspiracy couldn’t organize itself. But there’s one thing we can be sure of…

It far outnumbers the count of persons harmed, in the field, by the Assange disclosures. Why? Because if it was politically beneficial to tell you (in other words it helped the conspiracy), the evidence of harm caused by Wikileaks data sharing would be declassified and top of the news for regime media outlets such as CNN and The Washington Post.

The very same deep state actors that supported mass surveillance, the myth of nuclear weapons of mass destruction in Saddam’s Iraq, and other schemes too numerous to mention are out to punish Assange.

They’re trying to get back to business as usual — back to conspiracy as governance as if that’s the normal, right thing.

Which side of history will you stand on? Which side will President Trump be on? That might depend on whether or not you insist that he…
