Hayase explains Assange’s background and the founding of Wikileaks, arguing that its mission is critical for a free society today. If leakers and whistleblowers aren’t protected, we lose a powerful check on government control of information. She explains that if people think we live under a free democracy, no one will be motivated to reform the things that need changing, and many whistleblowers are working to fight that image.
