Many feel that the origins of Wikileaks – it is not just a gigantic scandal of world level. Assange, justifiably or not, compared with Luther, and Keyblgeyt – with a manifesto nailed to the church door. Do not be surprised if the whole story with Wikileaks completed a radical restructuring of the world order.

Julian Asanzh is unlikely to be a maniac, eager to world fame. In fact, he went to his goal of more than 10 years (he wanted to make a site for the origins as far back as 1999, when the registered name leaks.org).
