John Cusack and I had a dialogue last year about civil liberties and other issues. John previously ran a second interview (actually half of a second interview) on Huffington Post. Huffington has now published the second half of this last interview. With the death of Aaron Swartz this month, the Assange case takes on even greater significance for many. Below is the full interview if you want to read it without edits for space.
For full disclosure, John and I grew up together. I have always been proud of John’s use of his celebrity status to help people and fight for civil liberties. With various stars working against human rights or focusing on their limitless consumption, John is a refreshing exception.
