Is anyone else fed up with the Wikileaks nonsense? I’m all for Freedom of Speech but some things do demand privacy: there is common sense and there are sensible limits to what should be made public and when. International diplomacy, treaty negotiations, war plans and the like are best done behind the scenes. If there’s some egregious violation of ethical norms I’m willing to leave it up to a courageous insider to step forward. I don’t want a bunch of pimply-faced Internet hackers making those decisions. If my government does something wrong at least I can meet with my representative and senators and vote against them. Who knows who the WikiHeads are? They are behaving like a bunch of thrill-seeking egomaniacs it seems to me. These folks belong behind bars.
