This place is more dead than I thought.

Ok, so you are all probably pretty tired of hearing about Wikileaks, but I thought we could have a discussion about Mr. Assange and his website. Do you think his website is good/bad? Do you agree with his purpose in releasing documents (more transparent world/justice/etc.)?

Personally, I find him fucking unbearable. Not least because every time I turn the news on, I hear his name. I honestly wouldn't care if he was locked up or conveniently went 'missing', a certain level of secrecy is necessary within government. Oh and him and his followers seem to have a very severe case of unwarranted self-importance.

I agree. There's people that want to know every fucking detail of what the government has up its sleeve.

I always look at it from the angle of: If every person in the US knew all about the technology behind our most advanced military equipment, it wouldn't stay a secret very long and other countries (including enemies) would make their own. Then we wouldn't be on top so a lot of good that would do.

I'm sure the US and other governments do all kinds of things that aren't considered "right". Some things should be made public but not everything.






yes this place is dead. tongue.gif

People say I'm crazy for running into burning buildings. I say I'm crazy because I do it for free.
