Julian Assange disclosed the use of outright murder by American forces in Iraq. For that he is not the messenger of protest and the need for change but an Enemy of the State. Pussy Riot exposed the extending brutishness and extremism over Russian intellectual life by a ruling political Mafia. For that action they are not a messenger of protest and need for change, but an Enemy of the State.

The State everywhere holds the same double standards to protect itself from the prying eyes of the people. Assange faces dubious charges over the use of a condom during consensual sex with two women in Sweden. He is currently being castigated by Swedish, UK and US politicians. The familiar pre demonetization process before a show trial and his subsequent torment as an Enemy of the State. The Moscow Three will be no doubt humiliated by a regime who think it right to treat political prisoners as they wish.
Such behaviour can be partly individual human nature. But as an instrument of social control its the product of arrogant State power and the influence of institutions like State Christianity; a cruel and superstitions religious built on punishment and retribution. Christianity, its shameful history is well documented. God and State must be obeyed and those who protest incarcerated and punished accordingly.
As Western society evolves en mass towards a new religion of Science, Fact and Discovery, Christianity in a few generations will claim its rightful place as the most evil religion that ever existed. It will will take longer to destroy the Mafia State.
