Wikileaks Gets Nasty

I’m not sure about Wikileaks.  I’m all for it, when it exposes injustice and cruel regimes around the world.  On the other hand, if the founder has commited sex crimes in Sweden, then I would of course not condone that!  But that has nothing to do with Wikileaks.

But now that their supporters are supposedly attacking the likes of Mastercard and PayPal, I’m not sure.

I’m also very much against people leaking information they have been given in confidence.  Unless of course, that information exposes crime, injustice or incompetence. But a lot of the Wikileaks disclosures would appear to be diplomatic or political tittle-tattle, available in many autobiographies of the supposedly great and good.  So have Wikileaks ruined the value of these memoires, which no one buys anyway?

  1. Much of this latest lot of leaks seems to be aimed at causing trouble where there shouldnt be trouble. It is exposing people’s private thoughts and conversations which they have shared with close colleagues. Exposing that sort of private stuff is intrusive, we all have private thoughts and opinions about other people and on occasions we share those with people we trust. They shouldnt be ending up on wikileaks
