WikiRebels - The Wikileaks Documentary
(57 mins full version)


"From summer 2010 until now, SVT (Swedish Public Television) has been following the secretive media organization WikiLeaks and its enigmatic Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange.

"The documentary looks at WikiLeaks' philosophy and operations, some of its famous disclosures including the Kenya report, the Guantanamo manuals, Kaupthing, Trafigura, the Collateral Murder video, the Afghanistan and Iraq war logs, the US administration's reactions, and the lead-up to the Cablegate release."

--->Speaking of "Education," Stanley Fish, the Destroyer, who makes me fantasize about seeking out an obsessed Captain Ahab to take down his academic blubber, "wanted to write a book about The Fugitive," (the original TV show) since in his pop mind it "celebrated and anatomised the ethic of mid-20th-century liberalism...[So, the show's creator, Roy] Huggins met Fish at the airport, chauffeured him to the events [good life, no?], had him round to dinner and arranged for him to interview writers, directors and actors who had worked on the series. Then the fan made his fatal move: Fish scribbled down an outline for a new film version during downtime in his hotel room, and instead of throwing it away or pitching it to HBO at a later date, gave it to Huggins to read the next morning...Fish compares it to Les Misérables, though the series reads to me [Jenny Diski] like Crime and Punishment [Well, one must suppose that in each case it's a point of view, however stretched the analogy, given today's general postmodern psychosis in academia where authors are--or were--said not to exist, that interpretation is only emergent, subjective, culturally conditioned, because we "write" the meaning "into" the text as we read]..."the moment I showed Huggins the outline," the Minnow says, "I was no longer the Duke professor who was going to honour [!] his creation by making it the object of an academic analysis. I had become instead a competitor trying to horn in on the action...[Cut to the chase] This, Fish suggests, is ...positive liberty: The liberty to choose what one will be mastered by, as opposed to the state of negative liberty in which you are mastered by nothing and can therefore walk away from anything"...Read it all

--->But hold on, there's more than poisonous Fish in the academic sea. Some students are hungry: "Philosophy is among the fastest-growing A-level subjects in Britain. This suggests that despite the pressure from governments to increase the teaching of technical, career-oriented subjects, a lot of sixth-formers have a stubborn interest in more traditional enquiries about the meaning of life. Also near the top of the list of fast-growing subjects is Religious Studies; and this again seems to confound the experts. Notwithstanding constant announcements that religion in educated Western Europe is "on the way out", many intelligent young people seem to have a keen desire to learn about traditional spiritual frameworks of human understanding...But...

Utopian immigration schemes are foolish and sometimes lethal. What will it be like for our grandchildren in Europe if such negligence continues? It does not take a visionary to see blood on the horizon if reason fails. Qui bono?]

The Pathology of the Intellect by Graham Walker

"...Long and sad is the list of prominent intellectuals who confirm the proposition that sin corrodes reason. On this score I would recommend to you Paul Johnson’s book, titled simply Intellectuals, which shows how in case after case the noxious doctrines of influential thinkers were projections of their morally disordered lives. In a slightly more recent book, titled Degenerate Moderns, E. Michael Jones uses biographical material to demonstrate this thesis in detail. In the case of Sigmund Freud, Jones proposes that Freud’s doctrines, which so decisively shaped the modern discipline of psychology, were themselves shaped by Freud’s guilt over the incest he committed with his wife’s sister, which he projected onto the whole human race...Read it all
