The Wikileaks website has Julius Assange’s photo all over it with the ‘Help WikiLeaks Keep Government’s Open’ message.
Now, in the spirit of ‘open disclosure’, I find WikiLeaks a disgusting idea – almost as vile as terrorism. Providing information without context is dangerous and that’s exactly what WikiLeaks does in the name of transparency.
And, as a result, I couldn’t help but break into a smile when I read about Julius Assange desperately trying to censor parts of his own biography.
An article I read put it best ‘For a man who traffics in the free and open spread of information, Julian Assange sure has a lot of restrictions on which information he would like to see released.’
It is said that ‘It is easier to fight for your principles than to live them’.
