A Max Keiser Tribute to Aaron Swartz

I’d like to dedicate this video below to Aaron Swartz, one of the people most responsible for defending the internet from SOPA, ACTA, PIPA, etc. If it weren’t for Aaron’s work, the internet would already be owned by the SOPAists.

Here is Aaron on the work against SOPA:

    @Monsanto

    From his POV, he had no choice. Whether induced by a depressive illness or sheer desperation (perhaps a bit of both). IMO he was hounded to death.

    Aaron’s clip was first posted by his friend Cory Dotorow, who wrote Homeland (yes!) and who credited Aaron with a significant contribution to the book. Read Cory’s dedication and other grief-stricken tributes all over the web….

    Then honor Aaron by doing our part to keep the internet free.

    No way he killed himself.

    How could so brave a man not fight back? He would, that is why they took him down. Do you think we could not get the money to fight back in the courts? We could, that is why they took him down. Was there any chance for him to bring attention over shady legislation? There was, that is why the took him down.

    Terrifying times.

    Ha ha everybody knows this is all fiction. Where will he turn up next.

    Frauds

  8. Adenauer says:

    Who kills himself by hanging, if he lives in NY with all this wonderful bridges?
    To hang oneself to death is not that easy. Many controversous men were hanged by themself. Most famous German Nazi Rudolf Hess. Immediatly after Gorbachev announced to pardon him, the aged hanged himself with an electrical wire. Because of arthrosis he could not even bring his arms up to the shoulder.
    Also very controversous RAF Baader, Meinhof, Enzlin.

    RIP Aaron Swartz

    Thanks for puting up these videos, Stacy.

    Aaron seemed like an incredibly thoughtful, intelligent and empathetic person; a true hero in my eyes. Look at the amount of love and grief from people ( the countless amounts of people who didn’t know him). Out of this dark, dark tragedy there is a faint glow of hope – his courageous deeds despite the forces against him will finally wake-up the majority of people who are still sleep-walking?

  10. Mathew Titus says:

    I believe that he was murdered by TPTB.

  11. Mishopshno says:

    Can they give a postumous Nobel Peace Prize?

  12. SAO says:

    Visionary internet activist Aaron Swartz found dead; was this brilliant internet revolutionary ‘taken out?

    Another thought: Too bad he didn’t decide to go to the Ecuadorian Embassy instead.

  14. Ann says:

    Thank you for making that video available. I hadn’t recognized the name in the headlines. Another hero gone.

  15. Alf says:

    My condolences to this young mans family and close friends…obviously
    he was a conscientious and selfless human being who will be greatly missed.

  19. One modern Hellene says:

    Kαὶ γὰρ εἰ τέθνηκεν, ἀλλ’ ἥ γε Ἀλήθεια ζῇ πολλῶν ψευδομένων στομάτων ἰσχυροτέρα.
    Though he died, however the Truth lives (and is) more powerful than many lying mouths.
    Libanios, Epistle to Themistios 1430.1.2 – 1.4

    The above was written by Libanios of Antioch, the greatest rhetorician of later Antiquity (4th century c.e.) for the cowardly assassination of emperor Julian (Julianus) by the christians. He was hit from behind by saint Mercurius, an officer of his own army, during a battle against the Persians at 363 c.e. (actually this is why Mercurius was declared a saint by the christians; because he killed the anti-christian emperor). I think that this word is suit for Aaron Swartz as well, and that ’s why I mention it here. Because like Julian defended the dying Civilization at his time from the coming Darkness, and gave his life for it, Aaron Swartz defended the dying human Right of Knowing the Truth and Inspecting authority and –finally– Disputing it. And the authority did not forgive him for this.
    I had not even heard of Aaron Swartz until today. But from what I see in the second video, despite his past depression issues, he seems a very alive young person. From the same video and generally his work we also know that he was a benefactor and a dreamer of the future. And such persons do not kill themselves. He was a fighter, and as such he was moving in the Light, unlike his assassins, who are moving in the Dark.
    From the whole affair we can get a strange at first glance, but totally true, in my opinion, conclusion. That the Authority, despite its thoroughgoing love for Power, is –in the end– powerless. Because, despite the fact that it has so many praetorians and courts and the lawmaking mechanism at its disposal, it preferred to act secretly. It has no other way but to move in the Dark, because the Light will at last destroy it.

  20. Hondo Stalwart says:

    Swartz is a HERO. I am optimistic that he will never be forgotten. He is the radiant star of “Unity”. He represents the essence of humanity. His efforts need to be carried forward by the bright clever men and women, striving for Liberty for all.

    We need to establish a world wide vigil for this man, the martyr for Liberty.

    Thanks for this, Max and Stacy. Aaron Swartz really seemed too good for this world. I hope that awful prosecutor gets thrown out on her evil ambitious ass.
