Why does Ecuador protect Assange?

Does anyone understand why Ecuador has done so much to protect Assange? What is their stake in the matter? What do they hope to gain?

In about 20 years, half the population will live in eight states

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/politics/wp/2018/07/12/in-about-20-years-half-the-population-will-live-in-eight-states/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.626ff473a780


Eight states will have just under half of the total population of the country, 49.5 percent, according to the Weldon Cooper Centerís estimate. The next eight most populous states will account for an additional fifth of the population, up to 69.2 percent ó meaning that the 16 most populous states will be home to about 70 percent of Americans.


This means that 70% of the population will be represented by 32% of the senate. A handful of rural white right wing republicans will make the laws for everyone. Presidents who lose the popular vote but win the electoral vote will become the norm. And all this will happen even if trump is impeached and a Dem is elected in 2020.

How long can such a system survive?
