You're contradicting yourself.


The government needs to be completely transparent. Its not a democracy if the people have no idea what their leaders are doing.

You have to ask yourself why there are secrets in the first place. Research and technology advances I can understand, since that's not really government related, but if your nation is murdering civilians in another country, shouldn't you have a right to know? If we live in a true democracy, then the people that ordered their deaths did so on our behalf, so we are just as responsible.

None of this stuff is probably super secret anyway, or else we wouldn't be having this discussion and the NSA would have already made those with the Info disappear.

The leaks goes up to 'secret'.

People also need to stop thinking we live in a Democracy and realize we live in a Democratic Republic.

Thank you. I knew someone would say it eventually. As far as I know there's only one democracy in the world. Switzerland.

But now I'm just getting off-topic... Sorry.

I may just make a Twitter account now. After Paypal and Amazon's shenanigans, I decided to buy all of my books (for school) locally. ~400$ that didn't go to/through either company.

New Zealand's political system (which is in turn based off Germany's), Samoan political system....

Tbh, the Samoan (Western Samoan, not American Samoa) system is tbh, the most democratic I have seen. However it can really realistically only work with small populations.

what does free speech have to do with a journalist who is publishing documents he received from a source?
