What is at stake here is large; this is not an indictment only of one company (Google) but of the entire assault on civil society and individual rights conducted by the nexus.
That Assange manages to retain his optimism is a tribute to him; this book is a real eye-opener and a clarion call for action..by us all.
After all: the complete transformation/intransparency; between the mega-corporations and western governments is a long-gotten "fait accompli" (especially here in the U.S.) In "When Google Met WikiLeaks" by Julian Assange, this very idea is fully explored and confirmed for those that can plainly decipher the true/primary message of this publication. Julian Assange is for me (and I am not afraid to say it), one truly courageous and conscientious human-being. And for his efforts, he is now one of the most persecuted and convenient scapegoat of the most powerful people on the planet! Did it ever occur to people that Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, etc., etc., is/was in all likelihood funded in part (besides being publicly traded), by major government/private entities (because it's really hard to tell the difference these days) i.e.---DOD, DARPA, NSA, CIA, etc., to ultimately serve and be a part of the---"Super State". Defense spending in the U.S. is more than likely in excess of $1.3 trillion a year (and not the number they "officially" announce) , so it makes perfect sense for Google and the like, to go after this seemingly endless pool of 'tax-payers money' that is doled-out each year by our "honorable" and freely-elected---"bastions of freedom"!! I hope and pray that Julian Assange will eventually get his freedom back. That however, in the cold and callous world of the "Supreme Elite", is probably not to be expected. This is an excellent read, I highly recommended it.
Love and Peace,
