    It does not make you a commi loving pinko(you can't claim the title till we initiate you), it just makes you wrong.

    Yeah, because you prove nobody read it by answering the question you posed before others could answer.

    I HATE when people do this, annoying and arrogant as ****.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    Good points.
    But how was this dude ever able to access this info in the first place ????

    Other. I find them to be simple-minded children playing cowboys and indians with real guns, bows and live ammunition.

    Edit: oh, it's a poll option. How in the hell could any one pick that poll option? It's a stupid over the top statement.

    He's striving for a completely transparent government, were the government would never keep anything secret that it's people should know. And he's fighting for freedom of speech.
    He is a martyr for doing this, he will get burned, he will be extradited to Sweden and he will go to prison but Wikileaks and what he stands for will always continue. You can kill the philosopher, but can't kill his idea. THAT is why he is a martyr.

    Re: Wikileaks

    He made a distinction between transparent society (did not say 'government', but it was in direct response to such) and some sort of claim of justice. He said sometimes they go hand in hand, but transparency was not his aim.

    Secondly, I question the man's (and the group's) ability to dictate what the public has the right to know and what it does not have the right to know. I find it vastly counter-productive to the dictates of statescraft.

    Some philosophers undermine the state, others choose the wiser path of not aiming to disturb it.

    He is in prison for a god damn sex crime. It has exactly jack and **** to do with WikiLeaks. He is still ****ing alive, so he can't be a martyr. Over the top rhetoric is stupid.
