"I hope this is increasingly apparent now after Snowden's revelations, that we are facing a new Western religion. And that new Western religion is the national security state. It's hurtling towards a dystopia. It is dragging many of us along with it –not combatants but all of those who use the internet– are sucked up into this system."
--Julian Assange
