Neo-feudalism – World-building in the networks

Neo-feudalism – World-building in the networks – Julian Assange expressing sovereign control over wikileaks:

“Relations between Assange and Domseheit-Berg became increasingly tense, especially after Assange warned him, in April 2010, rather alarmingly: “If you fuck up, I’ll hunt you down and kill you.” Some insiders such as Birgitta Jonsdottir, the anarchist Icelandic parliamentarian, were concerned about the cavalier way in which Assange had handled the moral issue of the Afghan War Diary. Many resented what they saw as the increasingly dictatorial tendency inside WikiLeaks. Assange told the Icelandic anarchist historian Herbert Snorrason: “I don’t like your tone. If it continues you’re out. I am the heart and soul of this organization, its founder, philosopher, spokesperson, original coder, organizer, financier, and all of the rest. If you have a problem … piss off.”
