"One of the hopeful things that I've discovered is that nearly every war that has started in the past 50 years has been a result of media lies. The media could have stopped it; if they'd searched deep enough; if they hadn't re-printed government propaganda, they could have stopped it... but what does that mean?
Well that means... basically, populations don't like wars, and populations have to be FOOLED into wars. Populations don't willingly, with open eyes, go into a war. So, if we have a good media environment, then we'll also have a peaceful environment". Julian Assange
