Ecuador has granted Julian Assange political asylum within its embassy in London. The Brits claim they have some right to attack the Ecuadorian embassy to seize Assange, presumably to facilitate his delivery to the United States.
Is this really what it's come to? Is this what it takes to shred the last vestige of international comity? Can anybody else see where this road is heading?
Maybe this sort of thing doesn't even really matter any more. Maybe we are headed toward a negation of the era of enlightenment. I just don't know and almost everyone else simply doesn't care. At my age, I'm out of here soon enough but a lot of you won't get out soon enough and you're going to have to live in the world they're carving out for you right now, like this and in so many other ways. Are you really going to live this way? I mean, I don't know.
