I think the problem is that everything happens "under the rug" and there is no solid way to prove anything. Almost everything wrong is done in the name of something else as justification (like monitoring private details in the name of security). People are afraid to question such actions due to the fear of being labelled a conspiracy theorist. Being a conspiracy theorist is not so wrong. They are just skeptical and question the things they are being told rather than blindly accepting it.

I'm not completely familiar with American press rights and I hope I am wrong in assuming he will be charged for publishing said confidential information. On the other hand, I'm surprised that the media has not pressured enough about how it is a tyranny that a Government punished someone for exposing its dark secrets.

I wouldn't say it is "not illegal" just because he is a journalist. Tecnically he broke the "law" by exposing "Government's secrets". HOWEVER, law and ethics are not the same. What he did was legally wrong but ethically right. If any harm comes to someone that exposed Government's dark side, it would be legitimate tyranny.

What kind of cyber-protests would actually help and how can we contribute?

I agree. I'm simply pointing out that the Govt does not follow the very logic used to monitor us. Like the other post said "Govt information should be public and personal info private".

In the end it is supposed to be "of the people, for the people, by the people", not "of the president, for the president, by the president"

I think it is also possible that he is afraid of going there since almost entire world is defending Assange. Obviously it is not a good idea for him to speak against people's interests. At the same time Trump decided not to report the number of deaths that come from drone attacks "outside war zone". Imagine what you could do with this kind of power.

Like the Govt said, if you are doing nothing wrong, you should not worry about "breach of privacy/information". I think the downsides and risks of this decision are higher than the benefits of it.

There is no way that the PRESIDENT OF USA could not know about someone/something that "betrayed" their country/Govt. Why would he say he does not know anything about it?

It feels strange that our parents told us not to reveal our info on the internet all those years ago and it didn't really matter until recently.
