Your immodest self-assessment

of your own article as an "engaging read" -- is spot on. Very well done. I particularly liked: "To think.. a young man, with the courage of his convictions to challenge the moral authority of the greatest purveyor of violence and misery some nations and peaceful peoples have EVER known, would be forced to seek redress for a blatantly unjust prison sentence by appealing to a man unquestionably guilty of the very crimes which he’s been condemned for exposing."

"Government" isn't "our representatives." It isn't a "just ruler," or a "legitimate authority." It's organized crime. Their "right to rule" does not exist, and we owe them nothing but contempt.
