Judging by the stance of the leadership of the Democratic Party and much of the media Hillary Clinton s devastating loss in the presidential election of November was all the fault of pernicious Russian leaks unwarranted FBI investigations and a skewed electoral college Rarely blamed was the party s decision to run a deeply unpopular candidate on an uninspiring platform br br At a time of widespread dissatisfaction with business as usual politics the Democrats chose to field a quintessential insider Her campaign dwelt little on policies focusing overwhelmingly on the personality of her opponent br br That this strategy was a failure is an understatement Losing an election to someone with as little competence or support from his own party as Donald Trump marked an extraordinary fiasco br br The refusal of the Democratic leadership to identify the real reasons for their defeat is not just a problem of history If Democrats persevere with a politics that prioritizes well off professionals rather than ordinary Americans they will leave the field open to right wing populism for many years to come br br Drawing on the WikiLeaks releases of Clinton s talks at Goldman Sachs and the e mails of her campaign chief John Podesta as well as key passages from her public speeches i Why I Lost By Hillary Clinton i also includes extensive commentary by award winning journalist Joe Lauria and a foreword by Julian Assange editor in chief of WikiLeaks br br It provides in the words of the Democratic candidate and her close associates a riveting unsparing picture of the disastrous campaign that delivered America to President Trump and a stark warning of a mistake that must not be repeated, Les spectaculaires r v lations du lanceur d alerte Edward Snowden ont permis au plus grand nombre de d couvrir que la protection de notre vie priv e est d sormais menac e par la surveillance de masse laquelle nous soumettent les merveilleux outils smartphones tablettes ordinateurs qui

grands intellectuels de notre temps, Cypherpunks are activists who advocate the widespread use of strong cryptography writing in code as a route to progressive change Julian Assange the editor in
