Wikileaks


So there's this new website called WikiLeaks run by an organization called Sunshine Press that's leaking important sensitive documents previously kept top-secret by their respective governments. News outlets are in an uproar about the materials provided.


Is this really a good idea?

Some things are kept out of the public eye for a reason. They could be misinterpreted, exaggerated, or outright lies, casting whichever government into an undeserved poor light.


The simple fact of the matter is; people assume their government is hiding all these things they somehow have the right to know, but that's not what elected officials are for.

You like your new car?
Your cushy job?
Your piping hot internet porn?

Someone's doing something right, and finding out that someone is suffering for it isn't going to make you burn all your worldly possessions and embrace a life of priesthood any sooner.


Get over it.
