Pilger, an Australian journalist, knows first hand how media under the ownership of corporations have turned information into pure propaganda to serve the capitalist ruling classes, especially those associated with the US-led Empire. He introduces a new book entitled The WikiLeaks Files: The World According to US Empire which is a collection of essays authored by people associated with Wikileaks.
If it is true that "ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" as I was taught by my Sunday school teacher, then the works of Wikileaks must be one of the most blessed activities of contemporary women and men. However, the secular authorities, much like the earlier Romans with their treatment of Christians, have essentially "crucified" people like Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and Chelsea Manning who have revealed the truth.
In an American-owned world, independence is intolerable.
This book reveals these truths, one after the other. The truth about a war on terror that was always a war of terror; the truth about Guantanamo, the truth about Iraq, Afghanistan, Latin America.
Never has such truth-telling been so urgently needed.
