Wikileaks founder Julian Assange asserts that an entirely new generation is now getting their social and political education from right-leaning YouTube commentators.
During a Twitter discussion about how much the independent left is resonating with young people compared to libertarians and those on the right, Assange made it clear that the right is making greater inroads.
"This is where young men, not on the left, are now getting their social or political education. This includes people like @PrisonPlanet," tweeted Assange. He went on to mention Stefan Molyneux and libertarian commentator Styxhexenhammer666.
"While the U.S. "left" still has its anti-war heavy hitters, from Chomsky to Michael Moore, the new, vibrant, english speaking, organic culture is oral, and emerges from self-made videos on YouTube and forums," he added.
