6 months ago today.

6 Months ago today, my worst fears came true. Julian Assange was arrested. Well it was more like an extraction. For some reason, Ecuador invited the UK police into their embassy to carry him out.
Back in 2012 this was an issue. The embassy is sovereign territory. No one is supposed to go in there without permission of the country it belongs to. Ecuador sure had a problem with the UK police coming into it’s embassy back then. However, they had absolutely no problem with it 6 months ago.
I guess we really learned that elections do have consequences this time. Ecuador elected a new President in 2017. Had we elected someone more libertarian in 2016, I have a feeling we wouldn’t be in this situation.
