My main thesis is, very simply, that people are building Assange up in their minds to be something he is not.
As for the fans of Autistic Assange, they really need to soak their heads and find something better to direct their energies toward.
There seems to be no way to live with covid and no way to eliminate it. No global solution is possible right now. However, local resistance can have some effects, especially where the public has some resources to fight with.

The question I would ask is this; if you could mobilize enough power to overcome this get a new party into office, or to take over one of the existing parties, why bother dealing with it at all?

There is even less point to expecting anything to be changed by voting. Any political party which does not conform to the powerful action groups will be isolated, denigrated, and infiltrated.
