Politico Wants Assange Committed To Insane Asylum
In the former Soviet Union, dissidents were sent to mental institutions for the crime of disagreeing with the state. For the communists, opposition to totalitarianism was a mental disease. After the Soviet Union collapsed, governments of the Russian Federation continued the practice of diagnosing activists and journalists as insane. Enemies of the state in Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and elsewhere in the communist world were also forcibly interned in state mental institutions.
