Talking about WikiLeaks' cablegate can hinder job placements


www.thetechherald.com

If you are thinking about working for the government, but have recently used social media platforms to link to or discuss WikiLeaks’ cablegate materials, you can likely kiss that potential career path goodbye.

Wow really i am amazed. I just posted up a post about U.S. Military in Iraq Tries to Intimidate Soldiers Into Not Reading Wikileaks. I thought that was bad. Well theres more these may be common knowledge to Americans it is not to your Uk counterparts.
So if any of you here want a job with the USA government you better not post! (unless you work for the government already ofc as a disinfo agent)
So freedom of speech it seems is not a god given right to western nations but something that should not be taking for granted. I mean if this was in china.. np i expect that from there....

happy days

Well, as Bill Hicks once shouted:

YOU ARE FREE TO DO AS WE TELL YOU, GO BACK TO BED, AMERICANS, YOUR GOVERNMENT HAS ALL FIGURED OUT, GO BACK TO BED, AMERICANS.

It's very clear that Wikileaks has something important and revolutionary to say.

We should treat it with GREAT suspicion that there is a media smear campaign on Wikileaks and the leader Julian Assange.

I see continued threads where people try to make this guy out to be some sort of terrorist. I hate it with every fibre of my being as much as i hate religion.

You shouldn't be. It is perfectly rational and justifiable for the government (or any other organization) to refuse to hire someone who is supportive of leaking confidential information to the public. Trust is important.

I agree that for a stable civlisation there must be trust. It has to work both ways; for that, the goverment must be transparent.

Secrecy is the poison. It's clear the govermental figures with self-interested motives are secret for the wrong reasons; it's not "national security" - it's because of there damned corruption.
