Until the magical red letters stating the words: "Confidential" are taken off of the folder, it is not for public eyes.
Let me ask you this. Do you think the CIA ever tells the truth? Do you think the KGB ever told or tells the truth? Do you think that an average citizen will have a better life knowing what the CIA and the KGB are doing? No, probably not. Honestly, I think our governments should have a certain amount of privacy, as any private citizen would like their amount of privacy. The new mentality today tends to make people think that the government is doing something dangerous behind our backs. Which, if you ask me is quite paranoid. I mean, you were born in this country, you live in this country, and the people in the government? The same. Do you love your country? Do you love the ability to talk freely about this subject?
Do you love your planet and fellow human being? There's no reason for the manipulative ways of the US government. The world should be working towards peace, and that's obviously not an interest in the capitalist system as several of the leaks have pointed out.
I think the citizens of the US should take their heads out of their asses and demand true change instead of their pathetic blind consumerism.
Also Assange is an Australian citizen, and if he's extradited to the US, it's nothing more that the US continuing to break international law.
The Cold War never ended, and this is only the beginning. The flawed system will lose eventually, and I can only hope for that day to come soon. And shame on anyone who believes the lies and propaganda of the US government. I suggest you read on the principles of Communism/Socialism. How can a system that puts human compassion and sharing above all else be wrong? Right, because the system that puts money above all else said so. Do you enjoy being a slave to money?
