Life of Aaron Swartz, Interview with his friend- Ben Wikler
I don't believe for a heartbeat that Aaron killed himself. He was on the side of righteousness. He had every reason to believe in his victory.
It makes no sense as hard as he worked to make the world better to kill himself before his day in court. Hunter S. Thompson after advising the crew who made Loose Change, Gary Webb, whose book Dark Alliance revealed the truth about Iran Contra with details of how the best and brightest were targeted for crack addiction, etc. Suicide is an act of hopelessness. These and other political "suicides" (reportedly) were committed by folks on the edge of victory against our corrupt government.
There is an evil pattern of suicides that benefit the government. What are we pretending not to know and why?
