Assange, the movie: his father and brother expose the human behind public enemy No. 1

Call me naive, but I’m still shocked that we live in an age, and a culture, where you can lose your liberty, your sanity, your citizen’s rights and perhaps your life, for speaking truth. Sure, Julian Assange was determined to speak truth to power. Sure, the truth in question was ugly – a revelation of US war crimes – and the power in question the world’s greatest. And sure, such immense power bestows the ability, if not the right, to supervene the law. But none of that makes it OK.
