We move into the square. Most people are trying to flee the fighting but some move towards it, up the famous steps of Syntagma. We move with them, filming with hand-sized stills cameras to avoid getting hit by the hardline protesters who insist the media is part of the state.

"After over three years of effort, and many, many checks written to numerous departments, Ventura County has granted us the right to operate a fuel tank at a particular location near Lake Piru, CA. This is actually a huge improvement, and will be much safer and less liable to create a spill than the current methods of schlepping around zillions of 5-gallon cans in a pickup truck. However, we still have not, after 3 years of trying, obtained a permit from self-same Ventura County to install said tank. So it is currently legal for us to own, posses, and operate a fuel tank at the permitted location but still illegal for us to install one there. The tank we purchased 3-years ago in the naive hope all this permitting could be done in a month or two will probably be rusted out by the time we can actually install it."

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate." - Noam Chomsky

As usual, the good old days ain't what they used to be, and never was. In long-term perspective, the "huge crime spike" after the 1950s was merely a blip in the march of progress. Take a close look at the graph. Despite near-linear progress, myopic newspaper readers could easily convinced themselves that progress was zero or negative for decades at a time.

One bank lobbyist was interested in hiring academics to write papers that might take a different point of view on housing issues. But most of the experts in the area had been co-opted by Fannie Mae. "I tried to find academics that would do research on these issues and Fannie had bought off all the academics in housing," the lobbyist said. "I had people say to me are you going to give me stipends for the next 20 years like Fannie will?" The answer was no. The discussion was over.

Even though Assange has repeatedly said how he wants "everything" public, the reporter assumes that Assange would only want to release things which complement his own personal biases. In other words, he assumes Assange is going to be like him. For the reporter, climate change is not a scientific question, or else it wouldn't matter what cables get released. It's a political one, in which competing narratives are bolstered by circumstantial evidence and appeals to authority and control of the debate.
