Secrecy says there is something that must be hidden. It is a power grab by the ignorant.

Silence says it is pointless to educate those who have no ears.

----------------------------------------------------

Silence - Middle finger dominant



Secrecy - Fear based intiutive



Anger says you can all goto hell.

Come on, surely someone has something to say?

A very difficult topic and fine line indeed. With a brief stint in defence and constant questioning of what you can and can't talk about it is inhibiting to progress. If you have faith in your leaders and are at war it may give an edge to the battle. If you have lost faith in your leaders and fighting over lies it can feel like you are part of building the next death star for some unknown sith overload. Knowledge can be dangerous, so can unregulated power. Secrecy does hint at sinister under currents, keeping thing quite to protect yourself. Silence leans towards more noble attributes, keeping things quite to protect others. As for just who gets hurt when speaking out is an ethical dilemma, sometimes it is based more on fear than reality as we try and guess the repercussions.

At the moment I reckon we could solve much of the worlds financial troubles just by opening all the bank and business accounts for public review, but then it may also crash the whole system. Those who are grossly overpaid will have a hard time justifying their numbers, if they cannot face there peers and public with their budget then something is wrong.

As for the more high tech applications and appliances, there are some stories of other worlds crashing as advanced alien technology is introduced before the population is ready. Unless you are at war with the public on other advancements (HAARP, GMO, UFO,...) then the peer review could help keep these powers in check. I am glad to hear about the United Nations START treaty, hopefully now we can get past our petty disputes and start working together more smoothly and tackle some of the bigger problems this world has.

That is a very good point.

Sometimes the most effective weapon against those who attack us is speaking out. Those who attack us would be like bullies saying "I kick your butt again if you tell anyone". Of course we all know the best thing to do is work out and then kick the s#$@ out of the bully. That can also be done by speaking out.
