A reader observes…

Julian Assange makes corporate and government information available to the public for free. He’s a terrorist and a public enemy who should be assassinated.

Mark Zuckerburg makes private information available to corporations and government. He’s a fantastic entrepreneur and Time’s Person of the Year.

Somehow this reminds me of Chesterton’s observation that, if we really lived in a democracy, we would not be deciding what to do about the poor. They would be deciding what to do about us.
