Wikileaks publication

If everybody knew everything, would that be better or worse? Would it promote more peace than war, more decency than depredation? Is "transparency" the only touchstone of honesty?

The questions go on and on and are given new force by the fact that Wikileaks has published -- over the yowls of established press outlets worldwide -- its complete and unredacted dossier of U.S. State Department documents.

How many are suffering right now as a result of this release? How many are vindicated?

I don't know.
