The UK's decision to extradite WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange to the US should be taken as a warning to all liberals who still have any faith in 'American liberal democracy,' says cultural philosopher Slavoj Zizek. The Slovenian sociologist told RT that signing of the extradition order is just one of two recent events that really worry him. The other "ominous" event was the Ecuadorian government's invitation to US authorities to take possession of Assange's property from its London embassy when he was taken to prison, including book manuscripts, computers and other personal possessions. "The nightmare is that the accuser was directly invited to take possession of all these documents. This breaks even the elementary the norms of legality," Zizek explained. "The message is, 'Yes, we will be brutal beyond measure.'"
