Slavoj Zizek and Julian Assange on Democracy Now!

Thanks to Frank Sherlock for posting this elsewhere.  The anarchism of WikiLeaks has continued to cause much wringing of hands, and deserves much further debate; simply on the level of cultural phenomenon, WikiLeaks appears, on the one hand, to be a symptom of the dangers of increasing digital information flow, and, on the other, a poisonous antidote to the National Secrecy State, in which post-9/11, securitization has meant declining transparency in government.
