Aaron Swartz and Death of American Democracy

“Reddit co-founder and internet activist Aaron Swartz committed suicide in New York on Friday (11 January 2013) at the age of 26. Swartz had hanged himself”, the media reported. But Robert Swartz, the father of Aaron Swartz, said during his [Tuesday’s] funeral: “Aaron did not commit suicide but was killed by the government. He was pushed to his death by the government”. Suicide or Suicided? It’s not clear. But ‘Swartz was found dead weeks before he was scheduled to stand trial’, and it’s like Mafia movies. Now, some Americans put comments and say: “Aaron never hurt anyone. The only enemies he ever had were the US Gov. [His death] shows many around the world that the US Gov has been against its own people. It is not getting better but worse. Aware people in the US fear the government more than they fear anything or anyone else. The surveillance is overwhelming. The prosecutions are arbitrary and political. Civil rights are being pounded into dust. The US government does not tolerate dissention, progress, addressing social causes”. It’s really horrible. It can show you why Iranians talk about “Evil Empire”, “Empire of Lies”, “Orwellian West”, ‘Global Plagues”, or those American pigs who help Mullahs, Marxist terrorists, Monarchists, Islamists, and other evils. “Aaron Swartz’s death is the Death of American Democracy .The tragic cases of Swartz and Manning show that the US is turning into a real Evil Orwellian state. American Democracy is becoming American Tyranny”, the wise Iranians say. Swartz’s death, suicide or suicided, is so important and is a historic shame for the US. In their website, Remember Aaron Swartz, and in their “Official statement from family and partner of Aaron Swartz”, his family said: “Aarons death is not simply a personal tragedy. It is the product of a criminal justice system rife with intimidation and prosecutorial overreach. Decisions made by officials in […] and at MIT contributed to his death“. It’s unbelievable that a political activist and a freedom fighter is killed or is pushed to his death by the US government. As his friends say: “Aaron’s act was undoubtedly political activism; it had tragic consequences. Swarts was among the founders of the Demand Progress campaign group, which fights against internet censorship. Swartz had been facing trial over allegations of downloading of academic papers, which prosecutors say he intended to distribute for free[!] His federal trial was due to begin next month. Their attempts to reach a plea bargain with the government had broken down and he faced up to 35 years in prison [!!], and up to $1m in fines”. It’s really shameful that a freedom fighter in the so-called Land of Free, should face up to 35 years in prison. As the wise Iranians say: “It’s beyond tragedy that a young American not only should fight against American Censorship, but he faces up to 35 years in prison, and some weeks before his trial, he is found dead. Today’s USA seems like the Orwellian society, the Nazi Germany, or the Stalin’s Russia. The US has become a Great Evil that suppress Americans, and openly and shamelessly helps and supports Marxist-Islamist terrorists (MEK), Mullahs, Monarchists (Pahlavists), Egyptian Islamists and other evil forces. Swartz’s death shows us that the best name for the US system and Obama’s government is American Tyranny”. Think about it.


In the recent days, many wrote about Swartz. Richard Stallman wrote: “I didn’t know Swartz personally, so I have no knowledge about the extent to which he was depressed. But apparently[!] that alone wasn’t enough to kill him. The reality of the US attack against him surely contributed to how depressed he felt. So we have reason to think the US government drove Swartz to it”. Stallman, that has become conservative and can not see how his beloved ‘the Guardian’ has become ‘the Guardian of Big Brother’, and why ‘Comment is Not Free’ at the Guardian, also added: “This was not murder; the US did not aim to kill him, only to ruin his life [!!]” Even on 15 January 2013, Stallman wrote: “Urgent: US citizens (sign a petition and) thank Obama for legislation and orders to protect US workers [!]” As some Iranians say: “It’s shameful that people like Stallman kiss the ass of the worst US president ever. When even people like Stallman play the role of a politician, a Khayemal (ass-licker), or a typical stupid American, it’s obvious why American Democracy is becoming American Tyranny. Today’s America has really become the land of idiots”. I don’t know why people like Stallman, that are wiser than many other Americans, should play the role of apologists for the US government, the Barbarian UK, the Guardian, Noam Chomsky, the Marxist-Terrorists (MEK), and other evil forces. But when even people like Stallman cannot see the real problems, what can you expect from other Americans? Swartz’s death is not a good example, and many things about his death is not clear; but when his father and his family say that he was killed by the government, it’s obvious that what his family says is more important than what the government says. We should support his family and the ordinary people. It’s what the good guys do. But many Americans are silent, blind, stupid, or Khayemal (ass-licker). Recently, some Americans write about ‘self-censorship’ in the US. Even when they write about the Western-made “Dark Net” or ‘Hidden Internet’ in Iran, the Americans talk about their ‘self-censorship and say: “the chilling effect of self-censorship and intimidation is not limited to the borders of a country” (check our recent articles). It’s really horrible. Swartz’s death says a lot about censorship and intimidation in the US. As his friends say: “Aaron was a political activist who said: ‘Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves. The worlds entire scientific and cultural heritage, published over centuries in books and journals, is increasingly locked up by a handful of private corporations”. It’s obvious that those who ruined Swartz’ life are those who ruin the life of Iranians and others, too. I hope at least Swartz’s tragic death can force Americans to think about “Empire of Lies”, “Global Plagues”, and those who betray all humans, including Iranians and Americans. Now, the people’s comments at MIT’s website and other American websites show that at least a group of educated Americans are not ignorant. It’s good. They say: “This is not our country as many around the world mistakeningly assume. We really have no control except for the illusions that we are, which they con us into believing. We live in a Corporatocracy. RIP Aaron. Damn the US criminal Justice system-and MIT for pursuing him. It is shocking to consider that Federal prosecutors hounded this young man to death, while they have did essentially nothing to punish the mega-malfeasance in the financial industry that led to the collapse of the world economy. Shame on MIT and USA”. If these Americans can see the true face of people like Chomsky, and if they can understand what Iranians say about the US betrayals and the Orwellian West, many things would change in this shitty world. As the media report: “[Hactivists hacked MIT’s website and said:] ‘Governments prosecution of Swartz was a grotesque miscarriage of justice, a distorted and perverse shadow of the justice that Aaron died fighting for […]” But it’s really shameful that the US is becoming an Orwellian society, while 99% of Americans are silent or ignorant. They ‘thank Obama’ or support killers, terrorists, Orwellian media, politicians, and other bad guys, and show us why the US is becoming the Land of Sheeple and the Land of Bad Guys. “In 2011, Aaron used the MIT campus network to download 4.8 million academic papers from JSTOR, an academic database. MIT and JSTOR had an arrangement providing free access to the database on MITs network (Harvard and MIT have academic cooperation, with their campuses and facilities open to both institutions students and faculties). JSTOR and Swartz settled their dispute over his actions, but MIT brought in police to investigate Swartzs activities, an action which led to Swartzs prosecution . In July 2011, he was arrested. MITs cooperation with authorities in the case has been controversial on campus”, the media reported. As some Iranians say: “When many Mullahs, crooks, and terrorists can go and study at MIT, Princeton, Harvard, etc, and when you can see the Mullah terrorists and the Mullah Mafia at Princeton, Harvard, and other American universities [that we have already written about them; check Archive], it’s obvious that these Orwellian universities betray everything, including the young Americans. Those Orwellian systems that betray Iranians and help Mullahs, Pahlavists, Terrorists, Traitors, and other anti-Iranian pigs, will betray all humans in all around the world”, and I hope the good guys can understand it.


Now, some Americans write about “The Killers of Aaron Swartz”, and some ask: ‘Why did Swartzs father tell mourners at his sons funeral that the Reddit co-founder was killed by the government?’ Swartz’s death is really worse than Monroe’s death and other suspicious deaths in US history. Swartz was a young political activist/ freedom fighter. When I read about Swartz, I just thought that I know him, because he seems like many young, educated, and talented people in Iran. As his close friends say: “Aaron was a public guy. I met Aaron when he was 14 or 15. He was working on XML stuff (he co-wrote the RSS spec when he was 14) and came to San Francisco often, and would stay with a friend of mine who was also an XML person … We had a good talk about [foods and stomach problems] He immediately researched the hell out of the subject, figured out a strategy for eating better, and sorted it … He always seemed somehow in search of mentors, and none of those mentors ever seemed to match the impossible standards he held them (and himself) to … Many of us ‘grown ups’ in Aaron’s life have, over the years, sat down to talk about our protective feelings for him, and to check in with one another and make sure that no one was too stung by Aaron’s disappointment in us“. It’s important that his friends talk about ‘the disappointment that Aaron expressed about his friends‘. It can show why Swartz was depressed or felt so alone. As you know, “the disappointment in friends, family, world, and future can lead to suicide”. It’s what many Iranians know it well. But we all should not forget that the bad guys and the pawns of Big Brother ask all of us to feel disappointment. They pray to their Devil and ask for our disappointment. The bad guys pray for our disappointment in real change, better world, better future, good society, good life, good world, etc. But as the wise Iranians say: “Disappointment and Depression just help the bad guys. It’s what the bad guys want. But if you replace these emotions with ‘positive anger’, stubbornness, endurance, etc, the bad guys would shit in their pants“. They also add: “We didn’t know Aaron Swartz. But what would happen if we knew people like him and if he knew us, or if we, he, and others in all around world know each other, help each other, and show each other that the good guys not only exist, but are a large army that can change many things in [this shitty world]”. Think about it. They also add: “The good guys in all around the world should know that Goodness and Good Guys exist, even if we cannot see them by our own eyes! Goodness and Good Guys exist, even if we think that most people in the US, Europe, and the whole world are stupid Sheeple. If Swartz knew that many people in Iran and the world are like him and live and think like him, maybe his fate would have changed”. Think about it. Swartz’s death can show us that we can live in USA, Canada, Europe, Iran, Asia, Africa, etc, but we all have the same enemies and the same problems. Some say: “Aaron was a person who’d had problems with depression for many years”. But as witty Iranians say: “In this shitty world, all wise guys have problems with depression, and many things depress them every now and then. Only those who live like a stupid sheep have no problem with depression!” And as Swartz’s friends say: “Depression strikes so many of us. [But] whatever problems Aaron was facing, killing himself didn’t solve them. Living people can change things, dead people cannot” In Iran, you can see that many people are depressed, but the wise Iranians try to convert their Depression into a positive ‘Anger’, and it’s a good idea. We would write more about this issue later, but as some Iranians say: “All activists, all good guys, all wise guys, and all humans who don’t live like sheep and fight against the bad things or the bad guys, should know that if they convert their Depression into a positive ‘Anger’, then they can see ‘hope’, ‘motive’, ‘energy’, ‘joy’, ‘happiness’, ‘change’, and a better world”. Think about it.


“Swartz was a frequent television commentator and the author of numerous articles on a variety of topics, especially the corrupting influence of big money on institutions. From 2010-11, he researched these topics as a Fellow at the Harvard Ethics Center Lab on Institutional Corruption”, some say. But do you know how many Aaron Swartz live in today’s Iran and today’s world, but are unknown? In these days, when I read about Swartz and when I read his blog and some of his posts, I though that Swartz is not a stranger, but he is like many Iranians inside Iran. The Iranian universities, from the Sharif University (MIT or Harvard of Iran), the Polytechnics (Amirkabir Uni), and the Tehran University to many other universities in Iran, have many talented people like Swartz. The talented people like Aaron Swartz are good guys who work for a better world, and many of such talented good guys live in Iran and the whole world. Recently, the media reported about Maryam Mirzakhani, a young Iranian mathematician. As the Stanford University reported: “Mathematics Department member has recently been awarded prestigious prizes. Maryam Mirzakhani has been awarded the 2013 AMS Satter Prize. Presented every 2 years by the American Mathematical Society, the Satter Prize recognizes an outstanding contribution to mathematics research by a woman in the preceding 5 years. Maryam is honored for her deep contributions to the theory of moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces”. As some wise Iranians say: “Maryam Mirzakhani is an Iranian woman that is good at Math, like many other Iranian boys and girls. Mirzakhani is a genius, like thousands of young Iranian genius. And sooner or later the talented Iranians, that now are seeing the true face of the West, will put an end to the Evil Empire [of the Barbarian West]”. People like Swartz can show us many things about what Iranians say about the tribe of the good guys. “Swartz was born in 1986 in Chicago, Illinois. His family is Jewish. His father founded a software company. [Now, Swartz’s father is a consultant to MIT’s computer lab]. When he was 13, Swartz was a winner of a competition for young people who created Web sites. His ArsDigita Prize included a trip to MIT and meetings with Internet notables. He later attended Stanford University, but left after just one year. Instead he founded the software company Infogami, that merged with Reddit in 2005. Swartz received a substantial sum of money at a very young age. In late 2006, Reddit was sold to owners of Wired magazine. Swartz moved with his company to San Francisco to work on Wired, but grew unhappy with the set-up and resigned soon”, some say. And some wise Iranians add: “Aaron Swartz was a Jew, but it’s not important. Swartz didn’t have any university degree, but it’s not important. Swartz was a good guy that could see many real problems, and it’s important. Swartz’s death is not simply a personal or American tragedy. A member of [the tribe of good guys] has been killed by the bad guys, and it’s a global, human tragedy”. Now, some Americans write about “The Inspiring Heroism of Aaron Swartz” and say: “Swartz was unquestionably brilliant but also -like most everyone- a complex human being plagued by demons and flaws. He became something of a legend in the internet and programming world before he was 18. Suicide is a complicated phenomenon. I didn’t know that Swartz […]”. Now, some wise Iranians ask good questions: “Why do the Americans just worship their dead heroes, and don’t care about their living heroes? Why the wise Americans can become hero only after their death?! Why the American people don’t know or don’t care about the living heroes in all around the world?” Think about it. The Sheeple in the US and other parts of the world are alike, and the Big Brother and his mercenaries fool and control all Sheeple with the same tactics.


Aaron Swartz (1986- 2013) and his tragic death say a lot about today’s USA and today’s Iran. As some Iranians say: “People like Swartz can become somebody (a global figure) in the US, but what happens to people like Swartz in Iran? Many people like Swartz live in Iran, but are they allowed to be founder of something like Reddit? Many talented people that are better than Swartz live in Iran, but are they allowed to express themselves and show the world their thoughts, their plans, their works, their ideas, etc?” It’s a good question. As we said before about “Maslows Hierarchy of Needs” (check Archive): “Maslow said: ‘There are certain conditions which are prerequisites for [Self-Actualization]. Such conditions as freedom to speak, freedom to do what one wishes, freedom to express ones self, freedom to investigate and seek for information, etc are examples of such preconditions”. In Iran, people like Swartz just remain unknown or oppressed, because the West and puppets of the West don’t allow Iranians to express themselves. As some wise Iranians say: “It’s good that some write about ‘The Heroism of Aaron Swartz’, and we hope that at least some non-Iranians try to write about ‘The Inspiring Heroism of Iranians Inside Iran, and many talented people that live in Iran, but are oppressed, censored, silenced or boycotted by the West and puppets of the West”. In these day, those Americans that are like their counterparts in Iran talk about “the Suspicious Death Of Aaron Swartz” or the roots of problems. It’s good. Of course many Americans are so stupid and just remind you of Sheeple or ‘Cyber Whores’. They are silent, or say shameful things like this: “Don’t make a martyr/hero out of this bum … For all you nuts saying he died by the government, he committed suicide … Usually cowards commit suicide … MIT had the right to prosecute him”. The cyber whores and mercenaries in all around the world are alike. They are less honorable than prostitutes. But the important point is that you can find them everywhere. As some Iranians say: “Many know the Mullah cyber army, the British cyber army, and the Zionist cyber army that are the armies of Cyber Whores and Cyber Mercenaries. But many don’t know the US cyber army, and those American Cyber Whores that put comment in websites and lick the ass of their employers. Swartz’s death revealed many things”. Aaron Swartz was a good guy, who at least could see part of the real problems and the real bad guys. “Swartz discussed the grave dangers to internet freedom and free expression and assembly posed by the government’s efforts to control the internet”, his friends say. And some add: “Swartz told the truth about Wikipedia. His analysis about Wikipedia that was published in his blog was part of his unsuccessful bid to be elected to Wikimedia’s Board of Directors!” Aaron Swartz became a martyr that revealed “the secrets of the Shitty West and its shitty Evil Empire”, as some Iranians say. We all should ask: “Why a young man that is fairly rich and well-known, and live in the so-called Free World, should commit suicide at age 26? Why a young wise man who protests against censorship, tyranny, injustice, and the bad guys in the US should be killed or commit suicide at age 26?” This shitty world is really like the Orwellian world of ‘1984’. We live in a world of censorship, surveillance, tyranny, corruption, systematic lies and misinformation. And in such shitty world, the good guys should know more about each other, should help each other, and should unite against the bad guys. When the good guys or the close friends don’t care about each other or the real problems, it’s just help the bad guys and create disappointment, depression, suicide, etc. When Swartz’s friends write or talk about ‘the disappointment that Aaron expressed about his friends‘, we all should think about the role of friends in creating hope or disappointment. We all should ask ourselves: “Why did Aaron express disappointment about his close friends? And why and how can the close friends disappoint each other?” The British Barbarians, their values, and their traditions just create selfish, greedy, liar, cruel, stupid, hypocrite, and inhumane people. As the wise Iranians say: “The good guys should know why the British Culture, that has been the culture of Human-eaters, asks or encourages the humans to lose their humanity. Sympathy, kindness, goodness, truthfulness, humanity, friendship, trust, and other human values or Iranian values have always been meaningless to the British Human-eaters. But unfortunately, the culture of Human-eaters or the British Culture has polluted the world”. As Swartz’s friends say: “[He had to] understand that wherever he was, there were people who cared about him, who admired him, who would get on a plane or a bus or on a video-call and talk to him”. It’s an important matter, and I hope all good guys and all close friends try to care about it, before it’s too late. Swartz’s tragic death can remind all of us that the good guys and the close friends should try to show each other that they exist or they have not lost their humanity. We would write more this issue later. But in these days, as some wise Iranians say: “British Barbarians, European Barbarians and their media, specially the Big Brother Corporation (BBC), are making love with Terrorists, Pahlavists, Reza Papeh (Reza Pahlavi) and other anti-Iranian whores that more than 99% of Iranians hate them. What the British Barbarians and European Barbarians do has a deep root in their Barbaric culture, and that’s why they kill people like Swartz. They can’t understand the human language (Zaboon Adamizad), the basic human values, and the obvious things”. We have already written about the 2013 British-American plots, and we would write more about it later. But as some wise Iranians say: “It’s obvious that those who hurt and betray Iranians, are those who ruined Swartz’s life, killed ‘American Democracy’, and are establishing ‘American Tyranny’. They are the descendants of those European-British Barbarians who ate humans and drank human blood“. Think about it.
