WikiLeaks: Bradley Manning isn't a criminal. He's a hero. - CSMonitor.com. www.csmonitor.com (2010-11-30).
Many are condemning Bradley Manning for allegedly providing WikiLeaks with sensitive reports about US foreign policy.

- The Breaking Windows Fallacy. Jesse Walker: Reason Magazine articles and blog posts. (2010-03-24). The only thing I'd differ from Jesse on is that I'm not actually sure that Democratic Party offices count as "private property" in the sense that individualists are out to defend it. But I am pretty sure that this is a stupid way to try and handle political controversies. And I'll second the recommendation for Gene Sharp's "198 Methods." (Linked Wednesday 2010-03-24.)

- Google Alleges That Viacom ‘Secretly Uploaded Its Content to YouTube, Even While Publicly Complaining About Its Presence There’ Daring Fireball (2010-03-25). "For years, Viacom continuously and secretly uploaded its contentto YouTube, even while publicly complaining about its presence there. It hired no fewer than 18 different marketing agencies to upload its content to the site." You could read this as a story about the hypocrisy and unmitigated gall of the copyright monopolists. I prefer to read it as a story about how a flourishing countereconomy gives even the aggressive sort of ideological statists a positive incentive to work towards promoting the free world in practice. Not even a massive copyright monopolist like Viacom can afford to abstain from the anti-copyright countereconomy. Not because they agree with it politically, but for reasons of business, pure and simple. (Linked Thursday 2010-03-25.)
