It looks like Julian Assange, of Wikileaks, believes he is Neo from the Matrix. He has been living in the Matrix as a computer hacker and now has found fame as the guy who leaked thousands of classified DOD documents. These documents show troop movements, enemy intelligence, and targeting information. They also have information that the Pakistani Intelligence service is aiding the Taliban. So far it has led to the arrest of an Army Intelligence analyst and the FBI is investigating Wikileaks itself.
Assange grew up in Queensland, Australia where he had a long career as a hacker. He is widely read in science and mathematics. He claims he is largely self-taught. He has successfully hacked into a number of high profile networks. As a teenager he belonged to a group of hackers called the “International Subversives.” Assange has confirmed that he is always on the move, rarely living in the same place for long. The Agents must be getting close.
Wikileaks was founded in 2006 and even though reports state that Assange is the founder, it can only be confirmed that he sits on its 9 member advisory board. He does claim to be the editor-in-chief and that he has the final decision in vetting all documents submitted to the site. He fancies himself as some ethical hacker and internet freedom fighter. Assange believes he is exposing corruption and malice by powerful governments when he releases documents on the Wikileaks website. Just as NEO was looking for a way out, it looks like Assange is now trying to hide from the aggressive investigations started by the FBI and DOD.
Assange took the Red Pill and ended up in the real world of laws and accountability. He is now being chased by some very mad agents serious about bringing him down. He needs to speak to Morpheus and ask him if he can go back and take the Blue Pill. That way he can go back to the Matrix and live in his fantasy world.
