Slavoj Zizek: The treatment of Assange is an assault on everyone’s personal freedoms

Julian Assange has had his rights stripped away in a case that should alarm millions, but too few people care because his character has been assassinated. He might have to go to prison before he gets the support he deserves.

There is an old joke from the time of World War I about an exchange of telegrams between the German Army headquarters and the Austrian-Hungarian HQ. From Berlin to Vienna, the message is “The situation on our part of the front is serious, but not catastrophic,” and the reply from Vienna is: “With us, the situation is catastrophic, but not serious.”

The reply from Vienna seems to offer a model for how we react to crises today, from the Covid-19 pandemic to forest fires on the west coast of the US (and elsewhere): ‘Yeah, we know a catastrophe is pending, media warn us all the time, but somehow we are not ready to take the situation seriously…’

Democrats are threatening to impeach Trump if he fills the Supreme Court vacancy. But he must – our republic is at mortal risk

The president is constitutionally obliged to nominate a replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and he needs to do it quickly, so the court can be ready to counter all the cheating that the left will try on this November.

So the Democrats are now thinking of trying to impeach President Donald Trump again, if he tries to push through a Supreme Court nominee this year. Given that he is obliged to fill such vacancies under Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution, that’s like trying to impeach someone for doing their job properly.

But Nasty Nancy can’t help but threaten him anyway. “We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now,” Pushy Pelosi said on TV yesterday. I suspect the president will hardly be quivering in the Oval Office.

Let’s have a little history lesson, because I want to understand all this correctly.
