“…a society in which truth becomes treason”

This is what passes for intelligent commentary these days.

For the record, Ron Paul’s full statement, if you didn’t catch it, was: –

In a free society, we are supposed to know the truth.  In a society in which truth becomes treason, we are in big trouble.

Exactly so!

Also for the record, Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution defines treason thusly: –

“Treason against the United States shall consist only (my emphasis) in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”

Even if Julian Assange were not an Australian who by definition cannot commit treason against the United States, revealing information to the people of the world would only be treason if you think the people of the world and the United States are enemies.
