This is thread is stupid.
Yes, there is evidence that wikileaks is financed by sketchy characters etc... but that isn't grounds to assume that OMG ITS TEH POWERS DAT BE!!! If
a site is exposing members in government, business, banking etc.. then of course someone with power will see Wikileaks as a tool for his/her agenda
and possibly use it to spread some dirt on opposition.. that doesn't make Wikileaks totally faulty.
And your evidence that Wikileaks is a source of disinfo is completely worthless. So what? Out of all the information the site provides, you come up
with one article/document that DOESN'T EVEN LEAD ANYONE TO BELIEVE WIKILEAKS IS A PROVIDER OF DISINFORMATION.
BTW, I think members are taking this whole "TPTB" thing too seriously. First off, who are these Powers that Be? I see so many people accusing TPTB
for every dubious world event. I think people give TPTB too much credit - yes, there are people that pull strings in this world (corrupt politicians,
leaders of industry/media, etc...) but that doesn't mean they have ABSOLUTE POWER or are necessarily absolutely evil.
Wealthy, powerful people run with each other. They act in each others self interest, so yes, the little man is often screwed, but that doesn't mean
they are ALL KNOWING, ALL POWERFUL, and have this perfect James Bond-villain-esque scheme to RULE THE WORLD (that involves posting disinfo about
American history on a website that EXPOSES CORRUPTION).
This site is becoming increasingly stupid. I came here initiailly looking for answers, but what I found is a bunch of people that are are beyond
paranoid. Y'all let fear control your life, and instead of actually living, you cower before unseen POWERS THAT BE, post on a web forum, then
complain about how ppl need to STAND UP and fight for their RIGHTS! Reality check - voicing your opinions anonymously on the internet isn't going to
change anything - it may bring about awareness, but awareness is simply a tool for change. Take action if y'all so afraid of THE POWERS THAT BEEEEEE
