When Dissidents Become Enemies of the State: From Jesus Christ to Julian Assange

• https://fee.org, John W. Whitehead

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act." – George Orwell

When exposing a crime is treated as committing a crime, you are being ruled by criminals.

Enemy of The State

In the current governmental climate, where laws that run counter to the dictates of the Constitution are made in secret, passed without debate, and upheld by secret courts that operate behind closed doors, obeying one's conscience and speaking truth to the power of the police state can render you an "enemy of the state."

That list of so-called "enemies of the state" is growing.

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is merely the latest victim of the police state's assault on dissidents and whistleblowers.

On April 11, 2019, police arrested Assange for daring to access and disclose military documents that portray the U.S. government and its endless wars abroad as reckless, irresponsible, immoral and responsible for thousands of civilian deaths.

The point to remember here is that the members of the State also die. What is freedom? Freedom never saves you from death. At best, it might extend your life for a time. And what's the benefit of that? The benefit of extended life is, more time to be saved for eternal life, and, more time to bring others to salvation. What salvation? Eternal life found in Jesus Christ. All people die. But only those who are found to be believers in Jesus will rise to eternal life in joy and goodness with God. In fact, those are the only two reasons why this life exists since sin came into the world. If God wasn't interested in salvation for as many as are willing to accept Him and it, this whole thing would have been done, crashed right at the time of the first sin.
