war criminals

In democracies, or the pseudo-democracies that we are evolving into, wars are a result of lies.

Then who are the war criminals? It is not just leaders, it is not just soldiers, it is journalists; journalists are war criminals.

And while one might think that that should lead us to a state of despair, it should lead us also to an optimistic understanding because if wars can be started by lies, peace can be started by truth.

Julian Assange, 2011
