Leaks

I don’t really follow the news much for some reason, but I do kept myself updated of what’s going on generally…

There’s much hullabaloo about this wikileaks site which is releasing highly confidential government documents to the public…

Now, I can understand it’s original intent for journalist anonymity whilst exposing a story, but in recent years, the site’s original purpose has seemingly gone missing…

Whilst originally a site where anyone can submit an exposing story, vetted by a group of conscientious fact finders, now it seems to be run by a team of troublemakers out to start world war 3…

The very same public that lauded the site for exposing unethical treatments in Africa are now criticizing them for spreading anarchy…

The person allegedly running this site has been arrested and I wonder how he would feel if things he told his lawyer; things told in confidence; things bound by laws concerning privileged information, are made public…

A lot of information that is out there, is placed out of context…
And most people would just take such information at face-value, without discernment…

Sometimes uncovering scandals and coverups are good…
It helps to keep the government accountable to the people they serve…

Knowledge is power…
But true wisdom comes from knowing when to exercise that power…
