Btw, do not forget to publish your own info first. As "they" (don't we love to use the word, "they"!) say, practice what you preach!
Anyway the point about Wikileaks is that it exposes decisions and attitudes of diplomats and public figures for what they are.

Our governments are supposed to represent us (we the people). Yet they're not representing us...on the contrary, they're lying to us, hurting us, risking our lives, taking away our freedoms and liberties and making our lives all the more difficult... all for the purpose of protecting and ensuring their own interests.
We have given them the power to be able to do all this, and you're a damned fool if you believe we shouldn't be allowed to expose them for what they are, in order to strip them of that power.
To be honest, your whole premise/analogy for the OP is quite a lame one.edit on 12/12/10 by Navieko because: (no reason given)

Generally speaking, there is a lot of hanky panky that goes on in our name but behind our backs and it just feels good to a lot of us to get it out in the open.
But never mind that, your avatar is screwing up my eyeballs Mobus! I'm never quite sure what it is I am looking at. It keeps changing. Is that some plot?edit on 12/12/2010 by wayno because: (no reason given)
