Mendax the Contrarian...

... Julian Assange’s rebellious Life | TLS.

The language, often arch and grandiloquent, can slip out of focus. Take this chapter opening: “Disclosure is not merely an action; it is a way of life. To my mind it carries both sense and sensibility: you are what you know, and no state has the right to make you less than you are”. Assange’s account of WikiLeaks since it became world-famous does not add a lot to what we already know. The book’s most intriguing sections are those on his early life and motives. They help to explain why WikiLeaks has not been the agent of radical change its founders dreamt of.
