  • He definitely is.

    He's a hero because hes the reason Hiltlery was exposed and lost cuz shes a faggot and no one likes her and that he helped my boy Donald J win the election and thus stopped war with Russia and now instead of bombs and Shet, we have Trump partying with Putin in the Trump Towers and it's lit.

  • Yes he is

    Julian is my hero, giving up his own life to inform others about the truth. Half of the peons voting no would never have the balls to do what this man does. Describe him in one word? ICON. He gave up his life for the greater good i am forever grateful

  • Transparency for the people's good

    If a government is out of control to the measure that has been revealed by wikileaks, (by being party to illegal activity with no consequences for those who do such acts), then the people will tend not obey the laws either. Without wikileaks and freedom of confidential informants, how would a government be accountable to its citizens. The Snowden case is similar. If the government does not serve the people, the people will end up serving the government. Ask any escaped North Korean if our freedom of speech is something they wish they had.

  • Truth be told.

    For there to be true justice there must be transparency. Exposing both the Bush and Clinton criminal activities and both the Democrat and Republican establishment criminal activities proves he is not partisan. Given the nature of the biased media people like Assange and Wikileaks are needed now more than ever.

  • Assange is a hero.

    He has exposed corruption in his unwavering bid for truth, and at great personal cost. He has been holed up for far too long,, and has now lost one of his voices. He recently revealed the vile lies of Hillary Clinton and her ilk. Perhaps if Trump becomes president he will be able to free this hero.

  • Absolutely a hero

    Assange has put out informantion and stood up to goverments exposing war crimes and corruption. He is fighting corruption with information at great personal cost. Only freedom of press and free information will hold people accountable for their decisions. Whistle blowers need a place to whistle blow and in a world where our mainstream media largely ignores issues that don't suit their political agenda... Assange is definitely a hero for providing the world a place for those who recognise wrong in this world to expose the dirt and inspire change.

  • Yes he is

    There is no doubt he is a hero. The mainstream are scared eight now, and alot of bad press is coming out about him. He hols all the cards in bringing down the corrupt DNC and Clinton campaign. She is the one that belongs in prison. He is a hero!

  • Calling Assange a Hero is a Bit Extreme

    Julian Assange is a wonderful activist for freedom of the press and freedom of speech, but he is not risking his life for others as an individual. He is an opinionated and strong-willed individual and has broken barriers that previous journalists have constructed. He could be considered a hero in the investigative journalism world, but not a hero in the general sense of the word.

  • NO

    Yes, I'm glad that he got the guts to start with all the stuff that he did, and it was interesting to see some of the threads that came out of it. I don't think that he counts as a hero, though.

    The one that's a hero in this situation is that one soldier that gave them a lot of the information that they got. There's your hero.

  • I think that he is self-motivated, money hungry, fame obsessed

    I think he would do anything for fame or to get himself in the newspapers and loves to hang around people who have no values, standards, or intelligence just so he can seem cool. He is too status conscience and image conscience to be real. He cut his hair and changed his clothing because he is not strong enough to be himself and not care what others think of him.

  • A man with only faith in himself is a nihilist, not a hero

    His actions may seem noble, releasing information about the evil government to the people it claims to represent. His actions however are no more noble than a man who pirates a movie and claims it didn't deserve the cost of tickets.

    His actions revealed military logistics more than any great mastermind plot and served more to put lives at risk than to put villains on the pedestal. There was no uprising, there was no international investigations, because there was nothing evil revealed. If there was no evil in what he released, and the only ones who cared are those with malicious intent, the only people Assange helped were those with malicious intent.

    The discussion on government transparency can be had, but this is not that. This is on Assange's actions. He may have wanted to reveal seditious plots, but he found none. Instead, he settled for making a trivial statement at the cost of human life. Regardless of his desires for good, he settled on doing evil when he could not.

  • c is not a hero.

    If Julian Assange were a hero, he would not be on the run from the law. He is a megalomaniac who cares more about his own celebrity than the consequences of his leaks for other people. Although the public needed to know some of the information he leaked, he did not present it in a responsible way. He put a lot of people in danger because of his actions.

  • He endangered lives!

    BY revealing the secrets of the governments he is endangering the lives of millions of people because it means that terrorists can find out how to avoid surveillance thus increasing the risk of successful terrorist attacks. He is also endangering the lives of our troops with the information he reveals, this could mean an attack is a failure and could mean that we lose some of the wars that we are in as well as losing lots of innocent people.

  • See the message, not the man.

    Julian Assange, no doubt, did a heroic thing. But he did it for the wrong reason. He is a man who believes all knowledge should be available- but that raises the question of whether or not that information is detrimental to society. How to release anthrax into a public water supply? Assange would be ok with that being public knowledge. Assange even walked out of a CNN interview when a reporter asked him a question about the charges of rape against him. He isn't the man that he is made out to be. Although the WikiLeaks message is brave and of huge importance, he isn't the man to be leading the charge against hidden knowledge.
