First he attacks Snowden, and now he comes after Assange:
This guy's stupidity is nothing short of monumental and it makes my blood boil. His question is completely disingenuous and a high school student can imagine why Assange or Snowden criticize the West but not others.
Taleb has morphed from wanna-be quasi-philosopher to a wanna-be political activist in an effort to stay relevant. It's in almost everything he's written since Covid-19. However he obviously doesn't know anything about politics, political theory, policy, or history etc.
He's done a great job proving he's fueled by nothing more than agenda but also hate. The guy's a liar and a snake.
