"It’s not surprising that someone currently as much in the media spotlight as Assange would not embrace publicly a loaded label as commonly misunderstood as 'anarchist,' when the inevitable misunderstandings don’t lend themselves to being readily dispelled with a sound-bite. But note the giant caveat in the principle proposed by the interviewer which Assange did appear to accept: 'you’re in favor of authority if it’s doing the right thing.' Placing that condition on authority contradicts and negates the very essence of authority." (12/24/10)
