Happy Wikileaks Day!

It is not just the content of the leaked information - though that will be interesting enough - it is the fact that the oligarchy loses security in its ability to control people through the creation and keeping of secrets.  Modern democratic states do the evil that they do through subterfuge.  If the legion of moral and decent people actually knew what was going on, we could stop them.  They now have to look over their shoulder every time they create a secret, in fear that their evil will be revealed. Undermining their secrets, and their ability to safely rely on secrets, is a big step in removing their power over us.

By the way, isn't it the height of irony that Wikileaks is entrusting the leaks to the New York Times, one of the worst participants in the Great Lying?
