20. Assange lives in a bubble, though not in seclusion

An interesting point. My hesitation in agreeing is that Assange is one of the most talked-about people on earth, and given his core contentiousness to so many, a lot of the talking that he reads, sees and hears about -- maybe even most of it -- is very negative. I'm therefore doubtful that he experiences the same kind of delusions normally associated with a solitary confinement prisoner. But I agree with you that his confinement in London does not promote his mental health in any way. He is now probably a damaged person. Personally, I can't imagine being locked up inside an office suite in a B-class office building, for years and years and years. What makes it substantially better than prison for Assange is that he seems to have total (two-way) access the Internet and to other media, and people can visit him en suite without any apparent restrictions. That's yuge.
