Do The Freakin Math

Liberals and conservatives alike frequently rely on limited evidence, personal experience, religious beliefs or gut emotions to determine solutions for complex problems. From immigration to global warming - taxes to terrorism - or health care to free trade - analytical study is rare. Science based policy making isn’t the way of Washington. And the consequences are catastrophic. Change is urgently needed. Just do the freakin’ math.

Wikileaks for cover of TIme. Man of the Decade.

For anyone worshiping liberty, Wikileaks’ Assange should be a hero. It was the word’s of Jesus that claimed only “the truth shall set you free”.

Ultimately our freedoms and security will be improved by Wikileaks. Now, in the current paradigm were “national sovereignty” reigns supreme over human rights...human rights are disregarded in favor of “national interests”. That gives us a perpetual state of war interspersed by calm periods of rearming.

Freedom of the press is our nation’s first Amendment for a reason. Our founding fathers would be advocates of Wikileaks receiving the Nobel Peace prize. Only the enforcement of a global bill of rights with freedom of the press will really ensure maximization of human freedom and security.

Secrets may be good for ‘national interests’ in the short run but with all nation’s competing for supremacy in one area or another, we will never really know freedom from fear, want, oppression and extermination, until we have such freedom of the press globally.

Assange deserves the cover of Time Magazine as man of the decade. Calls for his assassination and claims that he is a “cyber terrorists” ring like the logic of witch hunts and the McCarthy era.
