Now that Julian Assange is indisposed, probably forever, it falls to Julian Casablancas to fulfill the prophesy for, as it is written in The Book of Myra Breckenridge, by Vidal the Gore, some sort of radical named Julian will come to lead us out from the darkness, and we shall know him by his hair. Distinctive hair is not all they have in common.
Julian (Casablancas) shares many of the same cultural and political views as Julian (Assange). Casablancas reads Noam Chomsky and Chris Hedges. Not only has Casablancas, the former lead singer for The Strokes, almost certainly also read Vidal’s Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, but he recently flew to Hamilton to interview Henry Giroux, the theorist, for Rolling Stone. In an interview with Vulture, Casablancas neatly summarizes the fatal harm caused by the unchecked proliferation of new communications technology.
