PETER KOENIG—Circumstantial gut-feeling tells me, this is not just a series of three coincidences. This is rather a maliciously planned disaster. This is a dark sinister plan carried out by a murderous western elite to attack China’s rapidly growing economy, outpacing that of the United States. It is an attack on the solid Yuan which is also gradually replacing the US dollar as a world reserve currency. When that happens the US-empire is doomed. This is not allowed to happen by those “men in the shadows”, who pull the strings behind western politicians.

ED CURTIN—The important point is that the entire system of propaganda works on fear that is promulgated via the electronic media: television, cell phones, and computers. It is pumped out non-stop. The fear is the fear of death, the fundamental human fear that the powerful know how to manipulate to control people. Death that can come at the hands of fabricated enemies, disease, or state forces that will get you if you step too far out of line. Russia, China, Iran, corona virus, Julian Assange, and Chelsey Manning being a few prominent recent examples of what to fear and what will become of you if you resist the fear-mongering and lies, and are brave.

PAUL STREET—Like the noxious and practically illiterate and innumerate predator Trump or not, many in the upper bourgeoisie are contributing to his record-setting re-election campaign finance war-chest ($253 million raised by January 31st of this year, more than half from large donors). If the Lords of Capital were seriously offended by or worried about his fascistic and ecocidal conduct and policies, they could easily end his presidency with weapons they would certainly use against a Bernie Sanders presidency: capital strike and a constant propaganda war on how the administration was crippling prosperity.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE—[dropcap]J[/dropcap]ulian Assange started a leak outlet on the premise that corrupt and unaccountable power is a problem in our world, and that problem can be fought with the light of truth. Corrupt and unaccountable power responded by detaining, silencing and smearing him. His persecution has proved his own thesis about the world absolutely correct.

PATRICK COCKBURN—The WikiLeaks revelations in 2010 and in 2016 are the present-day equivalent of the release by Daniel Ellsberg in 1971 of the Pentagon Papers, unmasking the true history of the US engagement in the Vietnam War. They are, in fact, of even greater significance because they are more wide-ranging and provide an entry point into the world as the US government really sees it.
