Commerce existed before capitalism, it is not the same as capitalism, so I am highly skeptical when visions of post-capitalist societies seem to conflate the end of commerce with the end of capitalism.

Trying to frame Julian #assange as "aiding the enemy" (who? ISIS? Russia?) is as absurd as framing Hersch (e.g. as "aiding the Viet Cong"). This is why they first tried to present or frame him as "rapist". Women's rights to the rescue...
