Adding to the list of mysterious deaths that have happened over the last few days, internet visionary and brilliant internet activist Aaron Swartz was found dead yesterday. Swartz, only 26 years old, was the co-founder of Reddit.com, the co-creator of RSS technology, and the key activist who achieved a stunning defeat of the freedom-crushing SOPA / PIPA bills in the U.S. Congress.
Swartz was found dead yesterday, and the official story is that he committed suicide. But Swartz himself would have wanted us to question the official story and dig deeper.
After all, his own website, Demand Progress, questions the “PROTECT-IP” act, the insanity of George Bush’s Patriot Act, the censorship of free speech by Facebook, the financial scams of Goldman Sachs, the internet kill switch and much more.
He even questioned the TSA’s naked body scanners, just like I have here at Natural News.
In fact, when I look at Aaron Swartz, I see him as the next generation of American activists who we all desperately need: energized, intelligent, freedom-loving critical thinkers who spread truth and beat back tyranny and oppression at every opportunity. It’s quite clear that had Swartz not been assassinated (er, I mean “suicided”), he would have gone on to be a game changer for freedom in our world.
Swartz was targeted by the system
Click here to watch this important video in which Swartz describes the decentralization of information on a free internet. Swartz fully understood the power of setting information free, and this is exactly the opposite of what the corporate-government-industrial-complex wants, which is the monopolization and centralization of power.
Click here to watch another important video in which Swartz describes how he and his friends defeated SOPA. In this video, he openly describes the government’s proposed copyright legislation as a “tyranny.”
Like all truth-tellers, Swartz was branded an enemy by the system. For the act of downloading thousands of academic articles from MIT (yes, academic papers), he was hounded by the FBI, arrested and charged with crimes that could have earned him up to 50 years in prison.
From the charges that were leveled against him for the relatively mild offense of downloading academic papers, it’s very clear that somebody powerful was out to destroy him.
Apparently they did just that.
Who benefits from the death of Aaron Swartz?
Who benefits? Hollywood and all its tyrannical copyright-pushing maniacs who want to criminalize anyone who downloads a movie off the internet.
The MPAA, in other words. That’s the Motion Picture Association of America. Former U.S. Senator Christopher Dodd is the key lobbyist representing the MPAA. He’s now the chairperson and CEO of the MPAA, which has a long history of operating much like a mafia organization in its use of threats and mafia-style intimidation tactics.
Would this mafia pay good money to have Aaron Swartz killed? (Are you kidding me? Do I even have to answer this question?)
