I think Julian Assange has started to change authoritarian, corrupt and secretive institutions. And we can see his impact in the backlash he has provoked - after all, he is still in jail.
However his work will continue. But what comes next after authoritarian institutions?
Well I think the demise of authoritarian institutions leaves us free to nurture the inner life.
This is unthinkable under an authoritarian institution or even in the struggle to change them. However freedom beckons in the distance. We will be free from authoritarianism but what will be free to do?
Well, I want to nuture my inner life.
It's interesting that tha inner life is largely invisible under authoritarianism, or where it becomes visible, it is twisted and damaged and hurting.
But deep down the inner life flows like a spring. And having cleared the authoritarian debris out of the way, what do we see, hear, feel, touch and taste?
