It's really a democracy. Besides, wikileaks is a professional enterprise and we should not pass judgments based on personal flaws. In that background, I say yes. I totally support wikileaks!
We should support the truth getting out. We have not had a free media for a long time. Let the chips fall where they may.
I certainly support anything these days even remotely related to truth. Not much truth circulating out there anymore.
Absolutely! It seems to be an ongoing battle. A man or woman - or a group of people - devoting their lives to our getting more freedom, more honesty, more fairness in our lives, only to have it stymied by the self-centredness and power-seeking of others. Sure, give the Wiki Leaks spokespersons all the support you can. The authorities can't throw the entire population in jail.
Yes, I think we should. The truth should be known. The only thing that worries me is the impact that the revealed truth might have on different countries and nations (if it's negative, of course).
its about time someone put these diplomats in their places, they says things and think they can get away with it, hell yea let the truth come out! with the release of Assange today you can guaranteed there will be more information leaking!
If the information from wiki leaks is verified and 100% correct then I do think a place where the truth can be released is a good thing. What I want to see is wiki leaks remaining neutral and not becoming biased towards a particular nation, belief system, political stance etc. So often people and enterprises start off with good intentions only to slowly but surely get embroiled in all kinds of messes and end up having to compromise what they stand for. Lastly I hope it never slides into silly and sleazy reporting just to keep readers.
100%. people want freedom of speach, freedom of the press and general freedom but when a company points out the ignorance and secrets of a government , suddenly freedom takes a back seat. some will argue it's a matter of national security. b.s.. if a countries government has that much to hide then the citizens should be questioning their government.
personally i think wikileaks is awesome. i will back this up completely and that's how i honestly feel.
The concentration of media ownership in the USA means that there is no 'Fourth Estate' in the United States. The digital divide of poor people without access to the www means there is no freedom of the press for almost 1/3 of Americans.
From Wiki: "The purpose of the first amendment to the US constitution was to encourage a free press as political agitator evidenced by the famous quote from US President Thomas Jefferson, "The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure."
Why not?? I don't see any cons in supporting wiki leaks. Information nowadays is very important, influent and impact our life but we have to wise enough for those information, media or news we consume.
We are individuals, some of us will support Wikileaks some of us won't. Personally I think it depends on the actual leak, so each one needs to be looked at individually. Some leaks could be brought out into the open and not cause any issues or any upset, though some may create irrepairable damage between people, groups or even countries. None of us would want our country to go to war against another just because some private information was leaked, this may seem harsh but some countries could react violently to certain harming words. Just my opinion!

I thought it would be a neat idea to award Julian Assange the Nobel Peace Prize for 2011 - if he's still alive of course - but it seems I was not the only one to have the same thought - the Russian government has suggested it already - 2 Peace Prize Winners imprisoned - 1 in the USA (he ain't there...

WikiLeaks is involved in uncovering many hateful activities of the US government. In this respect would it be justified to restrict their activities by the US government?

Do people honestly think that what Wikileaks has done was exercising freedom of speech?Really? These secrets were supplied by someone who swore an oath to protect them - not secrets because it would make the U.S. and others look bad, but because people could die if they were revealed. Sure,...

Can somebody, preferably someone who knows the right answer, enlighten me about 'WikiLeaks !' Somebody somewhere knows who is behind all the leaks and yet all the authorities, from the US President downwards, seem to be doing is a lot CYA and apologising to their foreign allies for the...
