Extracts from the nterview

How do you define what should be given a secret?

We always hear that question.  But it is better to reformulate as follows: “who should be compelled by a State to hide certain information from the rest of the population?”

Do you consider yourself a leftist?

I see that there are good people on both sides of politics and there are definitely bad people on both sides.  I usually look for good people and work for a common cause.

Hollywood announced that it will make a movie about his journey. What is your opinion on this?

Hollywood can produce many films on the WikiLeaks as nearly a dozen books are to be published.  I’m not involved in any film production at the moment.

But if we sell the production rights, I demand that my role is done by Will Smith.  Our spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson would be played by Samuel L Jackson, and my lovely assistant for Halle Berry. And the movie could be called “WikiLeaks Film Noire.”

Nailed it :))
